“Crossley ID Guide to Britain & Ireland” Giveaway!

CrossleyB&IOver the past few months, there’s been a lot of buzz about Richard Crossley’s and Dominic Couzen’s new ID Guide to Britain & Ireland, published by Princeton University Press. The Britain & Ireland guide follows the same principle as previous Crossley books (which I’ve written about here and here). The book features more than 300 regularly occurring species of Britain and Ireland and fabulous photographs!

There was blog tour this Autumn for the guide with some of the blogs hosting giveaways, including the Princeton University Press blog and 10,000 Birds. I was very excited a few weeks ago to learn that I had won a copy of the book from the Princeton blog’s contest, but earlier this week I received an email from Cory at 10,000 Birds saying that I had won a copy in their giveaway. (By the way, the video featuring Cory’s son is adorable.)

So, I’m holding a contest to give away a copy of the new Crossley ID Guide to Britain & Ireland. The lucky winner will receive a copy straight from Princeton University Press, in time for some great birding in the New Year.

To enter the contest, just leave a comment in this post with the name of your favorite British or Irish bird by December 19th. After a random draw, I’ll announce the winner on December 21st, a wonderful way to celebrate the solstice and bring some extra cheer to the shortest day of the year!

Good luck to everyone!

Great thanks to Cory from 10,000 Birds and Jessica from Princeton University Press for the opportunity to hold this contest.


Edited to add:

I received my copy of the guide yesterday in the mail from Princeton University Press and it looks great! I can’t wait to start learning my British and Irish birds. Thanks so much again Princeton,

  1. That’s a tough call! I grew up in South-Central England and have many happy memories of birds seen and heard. Perhaps my favourite memory is being at the RSPB headquarters in Bedfordshire, and seeing for the first time that brilliant blue flash over a pond – the Kingfisher, of course.

  2. Love the Irish puffins… Maybe it is because my 4th grade teacher instilled my love of birds thru her bird club (in my 6th decade now) ,or perhaps from a childhood book .. Mrs Ticklefeather and her Puffin Paul!!!
