About this book

This popular RSPB field guide is a rich resource of information on our most familiar garden wildlife.

For the second edition RSPB Handbook of Garden Wildlife sections have been updated and some expanded to offer comprehensive coverage of the many species that can now be found in British gardens.

Offering practical advice on attracting wildlife to your garden, this friendly handbook is full of tips on how to encourage garden visitors to stick around. It also includes appendices containing practical guides to wildlife gardening projects that have been expanded for the second edition.

Each account covers identification, habits, characteristics, food and garden conservation, and the species guide include sections on mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians, invertebrates, spiders, insects, butterflies, moths, wild flowers, garden plants, trees and shrubs, and fungi and non-flowering plants.
