About this book

Following the bestselling Secret Lives of Garden Birds, this trip around Britain's principal habitats exposes the extraordinary hidden world of some of our most familiar birds, beyond the confines of gardens and parks. We discover how they cope with living in seemingly inhospitable habitats such as reedbeds, moorland or over the open sea.
