Dijkstra FG Dragonflies of Europe (1 Viewer)

Has anyone seen/bought the 2nd edition of the Field Guide to the Dragonflies of Britain and Europe by Dijkstra, Shroter and Lewington?

I am wondering if it is a worthwhile upgrade from the 1st edition and worth my hard-earned cash and would welcome any thoughts and opinions.

Hi Roger,
I don't have it and not sure I'll buy it but this is the cruical bit from NHBS.

'The second edition includes fully revised regional guides and identification texts, updated distribution maps and conservation statuses, illustrated accounts for five species that have been discovered in the region since the first edition, updated checklists and taxonomy, new photographs throughout, as well as an introduction to larvae identification.'

I'm a bit puzzled by 'new photographs throughout' as this isn't a photographic work?

Thanks Andy.
Unless I see a rave review I think I'll also give it a miss. There has recently been a new species discovered in Spain (a pincertail I believe) but I don't know if it's in the book.
