The Wildfowl title in the Helm Identification Guide series was first published in 1988, and was the third in the series. Astonishingly, there has never been a serious competitor or update, and the book is now badly out of date. This new book aims to fill this gap. For convenience, this book restricts its coverage to the Holarctic (Europe, Asia and North America), and focuses on identification issues. It is fully illustrated with both plates and photographs, and includes an up-to-date range map for every species.
