Please note, this book has been reissued under the Bloomsbury imprint.
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 80 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 and double-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 naturalist Gerard Gorman is English but has lived in Hungary for the past 20 years, using the country as a base for hundreds of tours all around Europe. He has written six books and is an expert on birds.
