RSPB Pocket Garden Birdwatch by Mark Ward
Create a bird-friendly environment and watch the birds enjoy your garden.
Birdwatching is among the most popular hobbies in Britain, and one that can be done on your doorstep. RSPB Pocket Garden Birdwatch contains expert advice on how to provide water, food, and nesting sites to create a bird-friendly environment. It also reveals essential tips on observing birds, including the basic equipment needed.
The indispensable book profiles the top 40 British garden birds, each illustrated with in-situ photography to make identification easy. Practical projects include making and siting a nest box, and how to design a bird-friendly garden, including choosing plants to attract particular species. The book also gives information about seasonal changes in bird behaviour, and a helpful size-comparison gallery for the species profiled in the book makes identification easy.
RSPB Pocket Garden Birdwatch is perfect for the novice birdwatcher or families getting involved in birdwatching together. It will also help you join the RSPB's annual Big Garden Birdwatch event, which monitors trends and keeps track of how each species is doing.
