About this product

The British countryside is renowned for its natural beauty and diverse wildlife and any walk, whether it be in woodland, wetland or open country, is always accompanied by the varied songs and calls of our birdlife.

This new identification guide presents the sounds of 70 species that call the British countryside home, from songbirds such as the Yellowhammer, Skylark and Reed Warbler to game birds such as the Pheasant and Red-legged Partridge and birds of prey such as the Kestrel and Buzzard. This title is a must for anyone who loves walking in the countryside, and wants to learn more about the sounds around them.

These CDs are useful aids to identification rather than being definitive guides. ... the recordings are a pleasure to listen to in their own right and, particularly if enjoyed out of season, are lovely reminders of the richness and variety of bird sounds to be heard in Britain. - William T.C. Seale, Ibis - The Journal of the British Ornithologists' Union, October 2009
