The British Wildlife Wiki we want to provide you with as much information on a variety of subjects as we can, and now we are making a Bird Eggshell Identifiaction Guide. This is for then you are out in the field and maybe you find a eggshell on the floor, spot a nest with your binoculars or stumble across a nest on the ground. The guide includes some common eggs and some rarer ones too.

We discourage you disturbing the nests and this guide uses images from a generous member of the public which specialises in making hand crafted replica bird eggs.

To buy some of the eggs or take a look at the range please click here.
