Book advice

Hi. I plan to spend a fair bit of time on the Broads this year. Can anyone recommend a useful guide or book of the birds I might encounter and some tips about where I might find them?

Thanks

This sounds like a good book not too much out of date and focused solely for the Norfolk region. Don't have it myself so can't say what its like http://www.amazon.co.uk/Best-Birdwat...XZJNXMWWGQDS06

Thanks Nicola. Certainly well worth a look and seems to be pretty much what we're after

Neil Glenn's book is now in its third edition and is widely available at Titchwell RSPB and Cley NWT. Alternatively order direct from the publishers Buckingham Press http://www.buckinghampress.co.uk/

Amazon can take ages to deliver.
