The second edition of the Slater Field Guide is a great improvement. Still the most compact and convenient to carry. Unfortunately the second page I turned to (p119) revealed a serious error for those unfamiliar with waders. The Red and Great Knot names on the colour plate are the wrong way round! Hope they fix this problem soon and in the interim provide an errata sheet to go with the book.
