Review By: Agriland - Julie/August 2011 Vol 55 Nr4

Birds watching, especially by enthusiastic novices, is presently one of the largest growing partimes in the world. The Spotter's Guide - Birds of the Lowveld is an innovative and practical field guide in a handy pocket size that features all the bird species normally found in the Lowveld. 

The Lowveld of South Africa, home to arguably the most well-known and popular game reserve in the world, the Kruger National Park, is to a large extent still unspoilt and the peaceful home to its exceptionally rich birdlife. 

Saartjie Kidson and Herman van Niekerk, two of South Africa's most distinguished birders, compiled the guide in association with ornithologists, museums and bird clubs. A condensed list makes the identification rask of the 541 regular and 47 visiting bird species a great deal easier. The guide includes a bilingual index of common group names, excellent photographs and a handy Shapefinder for quick and easy identification. 

The 244 page soft cover guide is also available in Afrikaans as 'Kidsgids - Voëls van die Laeveld'.
