If you are passionate about the breeding cycle of birds, this DVD-ROM will take you on an amazing journey exploring the rich and diverse breeding biology of the avifauna o fBritain and Ireland. The vast collection of photographs presented on this DVD-ROM is the result of the most extensive effort ever undertaken to document the breeding cycle of birds. Decades of painstaking fieldwork by Peter and Richard Castell, supplemented by other skilled photographers, has resulted in a unique visual record of breeding birds in the Western Palearctic. This edition, published in association with the British Trust for Ornithology (BTO), includes more than 3000 images, showing nests of all 230 species that have bred in the region within the past 50 years. Many aspects of reproductive biology are covered, including:

• typical habitats
• nest sites
• nests
• eggs (most showing several examples of variation)
• young (most showing several different stages, from hatching to fledging, and many juveniles)
• adults for many species mainly at nests
• concise text information for every species
• the latest BTO data for almost 100 species
