Designed for speedy bird identification with living birds in the garden, the guide features beautiful colour paintings by Chris Shields. Accompanying text on the reverse side covers body size, food, key identification notes and conservation status.
Bird tables and feeders are a great way to attract more birds to your garden. There’s now a wide range of bird food available. Some birds eat seeds and berries, and will benefit from seed heads left over the winter. Hawthorn, rowan, crab apple, blackberries and windfall fruit provide an autumn feast for thrushes. Birds will also need water for drinking and bathing. So saucers of water and bird baths are useful during winter frosts and hot summers. Nest boxes and roosting perches provide shelter.
