Vote in this year's Birders' Choice Awards!


Birdwatch November issueThe November 2018 issue of Birdwatch goes on sale tomorrow [Thursday 25 October] and includes a look at the annual Birders' Choice Awards. Our shortlists celebrate the best – and worst – in birding and conservation in the past year, and you could win a Vortex Viper 10x42 binocular worth £519 simply by submitting your votes before 30 November. You can cast your votes here.

Our November county guide focuses on Northumberland, an atmospheric and bird-filled area that makes for a fantastic winter’s day in the field. Alan Tilmouth's guide will be sure to tempt you to the far north-east of England in the coming weeks.

Also in this month's issue Trevor Beebee examines our changing climate and what its impact will truly mean for our birds, and Dan Brown offers an insight into birding in the relatively unknown region around the Bering Strait.

Our photo ID guide for the October issue focuses on large pipits – Andy Stoddart provides comprehensive advice on how to separate Richard's, Blyth' and Tawny Pipits, which can be tricky when they aren’t calling. Any of these species classes as an excellent find, and our superb guide will make sure you have all the identification tools necessary.

Furthermore, there'll be all the rarities, scarcities and finders' reports, topical comment from columnists Mark Avery, Bill Oddie and Lucy McRobert, a review of a selection of birding accessories and expert advice from our knowledgeable team.

You can buy the issue from newsagents or order online with FREE UK p&p.
