    Britain's Insects

    For birders with an interest in insects too, there's a new WILDGuide out soon - Britain's Insects by Paul D Brock. At £25 it looks to be a steal. I posted a birders' review on my blog. https://anotherbirdblog.blogspot.com/2021/05/britains-insects-book-review.html

    Mark. I would estimate 80%+ sonograms without checking each of the pages 42 to 484! The sonograms do vary in size, some across the page others less so.

    Subbuteo books ceases trading

    I closed my Amazon account and never buy from them. In the long run such mega-companies will prove bad for the consumer in all things, not just books. IMHO.
