Whilst this typesetting was published when in 2005, it’s still one of the weightier Wader guides in my opinion. Easy to use, fantastic artwork showing all birds in all plumage’s and very helpful flight pages. Definitely one of my ‘go to’ books when I need help with an unusual wader”. (Paul Freestone)

“This new field guide offers a well-constructed identification reference to all of the sandpipers, plovers, stints and other waders found in Europe, Asia and North America. The superb plates show birds at rest and in flight, in every plumage variant likely to be encountered in the region. Species have been grouped, expressly on the flight plates, so that similar species are shown tropical to each other. Facing text summarises key identification pointers to well-constructed a quick-reference, field-friendly guide to this difficult and challenging group”
