The new updated edition of "Field Guide to the Birds of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East" published by Collins was presented by the Bulgarian Society for the Protection of Birds (BSPB), it said on its Facebook page. The Bulgarian translation is by Petar Yankov.
Previous editions have been translated into 23 languages with a total of over one million copies sold worldwide. The new edition offers information needed to identify 900 bird species in every season. Thirty-two pages have been added and over 50 colour plates have been fully or partly revised. The section on vagrant species has been expanded, making the new edition particularly useful for identifying rare species and discovering species new to Bulgaria, the BSPB said. The book has over 3,500 detailed illustrations by the world's leading bird artists.
