Collins Bird Guide
Buy from:   or
Lars Svensson et al
Described by some as the best field guide in the world, and 15 years in the making. Has it been Worth the Wait?...Yes definately! If you buy just 1 book a year then make sure that its this one. Stunning drawings by the worlds finest bird illustrators..and it shows..check out the plates on tern, Skuas, and the Ducks...not forgetting the Finches and Crossbills.

The Complete Guide to the Birdlife of Britain & Europe
Buy from:   or
Rob Hume, Peter Hayman
This is quite simply the best illustrated guide to Europes birds that I have seen. Every bird is pictured at least five times (and sometimes twenty times) in varying poses within its habitat. Seeing the birds in context, really gives this book the edge. The text , written by an expert, is concise, thorough and up to date. Many of the recent splits are included. The likes of Yelkouan Shearwater and Southern Grey Shrike are illustrated superbly for perhaps the first time in any recent guide. More than a field guide, the book is coffee table size, and certainly deserves to be in the collection of every serious bird watcher.

The Rough Guide to Germany
Buy from:   or
Gordon Mclachlan, et al
Very easy to read and includes a number of maps and even a few colour photos. It also includes a bit of history but doesn't force dry statistics on the reader. The general information about living in or visiting Germany was also useful.
