Default Blacks Nature Guides: Birds of Britain and Europe anyone using it?!

have been looking around for a new pocket field guide, and this one caught my eye! after being caught out with the RSPB pocket guide and a Lesser Scaup i want something with a few more birds in it! anyone recommend this one as i like the size and layout but don't know what it's like actually in the field!

Any info?

Not tried the Blacks,my favourites at the moment are Collinsons Bird Guide,the RSPB handbook of British birds but to fit in the pocket maybe a Mtchel Beazley.For myself I prefer guides with drawings/paintings rather than photos.You always seem to collect more than one,dread to count how many I have bought over the last 50 years or so
