About this book

The Birdwatcher's Garden is ideal for people who wish to attract birds to their gardens, whether to aid the bird population or purely for pleasure. The reference tables throughout identify the food and plants that attract specific birds. It is from UK authors who have a long-shared interest in wildlife, conservation and ecology. The most regular contact many people have with wildlife is the pleasure of watching birds in the garden. Readers can increase the attraction of their garden for birds by supplementing the food, shelter, roosting and nesting sites that are available.

Hazel and Pamela Johnson show the most effective means of ensuring that birds will flourish and also detail the principles of sympathetic gardening, discussing how best to enhance local habitats, whether in cities, suburbs, a village or rural setting. Even patios and balconies can be attractive and useful to birds and the authors share their experience of this, devoting a chapter to the particular concerns of small gardens. They also cover: constructing, siting and maintaining ponds; cultivating annuals, biennials, perennials and aquatic plants; organic gardening and conservation issues; avoiding potential hazards; and, breeding and feeding habits.
