Review:

"[T]op-notch. . . . From the detailed records of vagrants and their identification to expert tips on how to see the likes of Humpback and Killer Whales, it is all here."--Steve Gantlett, Birding World

"This book is essential for everyone who visits or lives along Britain's coasts."--Devorah Bennu, GrrlScentist

"[A]n excellent identification guide . . . stuffed with useful maps, photos, tips and illustrations showing above and below-water profiles."--Birds

"An essential field guide to all the sea mammals--whales, dolphins, porpoises, and seals--found in coastal Britain."--Wildlife Magazine

"As a field guide this is an excellent book--including a plastic cover for the inclement weather but it is not just a field guide as it tells you about where to go, when to go and quite a lot about the ecology and conservation of the species that you might see. . . . This book is highly recommended for the right kind of library as it will be useful to both the casual observer right up to the obsessive cetacean twitcher!"--Helen Ashton, Reference Reviews
