    is my favourite field guide, because the jizz of nearly every bird
seems   right to my eyes, although some of the later printings have washed
out colours. Simpson & Day's new edition seems to have larger descriptions
than the old edition of which one American said "It's a beautiful book
when you first buy      it - but it gets worse the longer you have it". and
I think the opposite       could be said of Pizzey.
     Another saying that I like is "If in doubt, consult Pizzey." and an
even better  one is "You should carry two field guides, and one of them
should be Pizzey". And I am really looking forward to his new edition with
four? birds      to the  page, opposite the descriptions and maps.
     I'll certainly be buying all three new guides as they are updated.
Possibly a  small wheelbarrow as well.
