Our apps are British-made, by British naturalists - we know our stuff! Fantastic photos, songs, calls, distribution maps and detailed information for over 200 birds - all the common and best known birds in Britain arranged by family or alphabetically. The specially written bird notes cover the appearance, habitat, diet, lifespan, nesting habits, rarity status, and distribution in Britain, as well as interesting facts.
The photo-based Bird Finder will quickly identify a mystery bird, then you can mark it as seen, add your own photos, and make a note about it. Automatically note the current date, time, latitude, longitude and Grid Reference. Share the news with your friends straight away with the built-in Facebook and Twitter links. The app includes iCloud syncing, so that if you have more than one device (iPhone, iPod or iPad) your sightings will automatically synchronise.

Ratings and Reviews
Used this app in England, Guernsey and in Normandy, France. Supposed to be for England but was mostly fine for Northern France. (Only avocet and bluethroat seen in France not in app) I'd highly recommend! Songs & calls help a lot on the field. I was traveling in mid-summer so the juvenile pics were also useful. This is well organized and indexed. Don't know how well it would work for a beginning birder, but i thought it was great. I never got much out of the bird finder option. Wish there was an app like this for all of Europe!
Great app! Intuitive to use and feature rich! I appreciate its ability to record sightings too. Makes me want to go find them all. Love it!
