Birds of the Countryside – British Isles & Europe

The Korck Publishing Wall Poster “The Christopher Helm Handbook of Bird Identification: Birds of the Countryside – British Isles & Europe”

Among the bird families represented on this poster are: bunting, chough, crossbill, dove, finch, flycatcher, jay, lark, martin, nightingale, nuthatch, owl, pipit, rock thrush, sandgrouse, shrike, swallow, tit, wagtail, warbler, wheatear & woodpecker. The illustrations of the 115 beautiful bird species shown are from the over 350 colour plates containing thousands of individual images painted by some of Europe’s leading bird artists

These are the birds that do so much to make a beautiful summer’s day in the countryside – just that! We inextricably share our environment with birds. They daily delight us with the infinite variety of their shapes and sizes and colours, their mastery of flight, and their bright birdsong.

Man’s impact on birds has been largely negative, principally through habitat destruction. But with increasing awareness of the need to protect our environment for the future has come, happily, an increasing desire to better know and understand birds.

This wall poster series serves largely as a pictorial catalogue of various bird groupings, and hopefully as a stimulus to the viewer to read more and learn more about birds.

Whether you are a serious bird watcher or not, one thing is guaranteed …you will love this poster.

This poster will adorn any wall at home, in the waiting room, at the office or in school or university. It will make a perfect gift not just for bird enthusiasts but for nature lovers in general.

We find that many people buy our posters for their children’s bedrooms to encourage them to have a lifelong interest in nature and its wonderful creatures.

The wall poster measures 900 mm x 594 mm (35.4 x 23.4 inches. The poster is double laminated (ie laminated both sides) for ultimate protection, and will be shipped to you in a sturdy postal tube. Many of our customers throughout the world choose to frame or blockmount the poster such is the quality and impact of the poster itself.
