About this book

An ornithology quiz book with challenging questions for birders, based on the popular Bird of Britain contest, hosted by Bill Oddie at the annual British Birdwatching Fair. The Fair, held every August at the Egleton Nature Reserve at Rutland Water, attracted around 15,000 visitors last year. One of the most popular attractions in the Events Marquee is the Bird Brain of Britain contest. Following the format of the television programme Mastermind, each of the four experts must answer a set of questions on their nominated specialist subject, and a second set on general ornithological knowledge. This book reproduces all of the questions asked in the contest over its 11-year lifespan.
