About this product

Most of us can tell the difference between a blue tit and a blackbird or a robin and a wren, but what happens if you close your eyes - can you still tell which bird is which simply by listening to their song? If the answer is no, then this practical audio guide to the songs of British gardenbirds is the easy way to get to know the songs of some of our most popular and best-loved songbirds.

Recorded on location in the Somerset Levels, in the garden of birdwatcher, writer and broadcaster Stephen Moss, this helpful and practical guide will quickly enable you to sort out your blue tits from your great tits and your hedge sparrows from your tree sparrows. Joining Stephen and presenter Brett Westwood, wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson is armed with an array of microphones that allow us to eavesdrop on the songs, calls and alarm cries of the birds we see around us. Packed with useful information and helpful tips, this guide is for anyone who wants to understand more about the beautiful birds which share our parks and gardens every day.
