About this book

Accessible reference book on birds and birdwatching, written in an informal style, and livened up with cartoons.

Concise and informative, in a chatty everyday style. It is a great book for dipping into and could even be used as a quiz book if you are stuck for entertainment. Birds (Feb 2006) "Packed with hundreds of questions that anyone broadly interested in birds might ask, each one answered in an easy-to-understand manner. Excellent for anyone, new to birdwatching or not." BTO News (Jan/Feb 2006) "Covers not only "Everything" you might be afraid, for whatever murky psychological reasons, to ask about birds, but plenty that you probably wouldn't even think of asking." Birdwatch (Feb 2006) "Crams thousands of little factoids that you never knew you never knew about our feathered friends." The Sunday Express (11 Dec 2005) "There is something here for everyone, no matter what your level of bird knowledge. Pick up a copy, flick through it and dip into a question and you will be instantly educated and amused." Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust
