Please note, this replaces Pocket Guide to Garden Birds, which was to be published on the natural history list of New Holland publishers, but got cancelled.
This compact title is an essential guide to every aspect of the subject, from when and what to feed the birds to building bird tables and nest boxes and planting a garden that will provide nesting, feeding and roosting places. There is also an ID guide to 83 of the most common garden bird species, including the familiar Chaffinch and Blue Tit and more unusual visitors such as Brambling, Redstart and Tawny Owl. Pocket Guide To Garden Birds is as visually impressive as it is easy to use, with many stunning full-page images to support the authoritative text. Printed on quality paper, the paperback format with flaps adds to the book's durability in the field and provides built-in page-markers for quick reference.
Expert birder and photographer Nigel Blake is based in Hertfordshire. His images have featured on the covers of many magazines and other publications and one of his specialities is photographing birds at bird feeders for the RSPB.
