I should emphasise that this is not a new printing, so there is no additional information contained therein. Craig Robson's A Field Guide to the Birds of Thailand has the obvious advantages that the maps, species listing for the country, and taxonomy are more or less up to date, whereas those in L & R date from 1989.
