Collins complete photographic guides to British natural history

Written by Paul Sterry, a biologist, author and photographer, the critically acclaimed ‘Collins Complete’ series of field guides has set new standards in terms of image quality and the role that photography has to play in the identification of plants and animals. I refer to these books regularly to help me learn about the wildlife I see whilst out walking in the English countryside.
