THat is a great book, I also have the oversize Edition, excellent!

Another great resource is the two-volume set: The Birds of the Western  
Palearctic (Concise Edition) by D. W. Snow and C. M. Perrins. This set  
is fantastic, and not sure if you have seen this Patrick) but the  
treatment of Gulls in Volume 1 is about the best I have seen. Each  
bird is extensively outlined with multiple drawings of the birds in  
flight with all the wing moult/cycle patterns shown with comparisons  
to similar species. I think I bought my set at Buteo Books. They are  
large books, the set is about 5 inches thick!

Another great book for European Seabirds: Flight Identification of  
European Seabirds (Helm Identification Guides)- another of my favorites.

I will second Chris' recommendation for this book.   Everyone should  
own this one, even if they don't go to Europe.  The treatment of gulls  
and shorebirds is worth the price.  I even purchased the oversized  
coffee table version.
