        Birds of Europe By Lars Jonsson Helm, £ (hardback) Another beautifully illustrated and very well written guide, also covering birds of Britain, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East.   I read a book when I was pregnant in which I am trying to hunt down for my sister who is now pregnant. The book was broken into I think 9 chapters, one for each month of the woman's pregnancy and each chapter focussed on a different cheese and the fictional affect that it had on the woman's life.

I was thrilled, therefore, when a copy of a brand new book dedicated to bird habitats arrived at Ireland’s Wildlife HQ. “Bird Habitats in Ireland”, edited by environmental consultant Richard Nairn and John O’Halloran, Professor of Zoology and Ecology at University College Cork, is a unique tome that, as the name suggests, is organised.
