App Description

Pocket Guide to UK Birds of Prey is an general ramblers guide to help identify the Birds of Prey that have been reported around the UK.

Containing records listed by the BOU for the birds of prey that have been seen or found around the UK, the guide is ideal for ramblers, walkers or just to help with your childrens questions on a day out in the car to identify birds of prey when sighted.

The guide covers detailed information ranging from key points for identification, images for each item which can be zoomed for more detail and further records of general information.

Other views are included such as a text search view (wildcards are supported), a quick browse picture view as well as views that can be categorised by family, genus, conservation status and BOU designation.

Facebook and twitter capabilities allow posting to your wall or feeds.

Custom notes may be added to each entry along with a counter feature which may be used to track number of sightings.

Other utilities such as flashlight and compass, day and night weather prediction view for around the next 5 days, moon phases and sunrise/sunset, moon rise/set and twilight start/set are also provided.

Note: A small number of the birds listed are from BOU categories D and E, these are mentioned for completeness only as they are referenced from historical records of sightings in the UK and you would not usually be expected to see these.
