'A Guide to the Birds of Nepal' By Carol & Tim Inskipp, this new, substantial book (392 pages, over 670 maps, many line-drawings and eight very useful colour plates of difficult-to-identify warblers and finches) will be published by Croom Helm this month. The paintings, by Craig Robson and Richard Grimmett, will be very useful to birders visiting any Asian country (see black-and-white copy of one of the colour plates). By a special arrangement--exclusive to subscribers to British Birds and members of the Oriental Bird Club--you can obtain your copy post free (to UK & Irish addresses), immediately that it is available, through British BirdShop, and with a reduction of £2.00 on all prepublication orders.
