The number one question I field each week…

Has to be “When is the (fill in UK or Western) version of The Crossley ID Guide coming out?” Well, I don’t have the answer yet, but I do have a sneak peek at one of the plates for the Bar-tailed Godwit from the UK edition. More to come next week too, so check back.
