About this book

The Garden Bird Year gives both birdwatchers and gardeners alike insights into how to attract both resident and visiting birds to the garden, and how to manage this precious space as a vital resource for birds.

This beautifully illustrated book is an appealing and practical guide combining useful hands-on advice about how to maintain your garden, with fascinating information about bird behaviour and detailed descriptions of key species.

Author Roy Beddard explains how to plan a range of garden habitats to accommodate the needs of birds in each season of the year. Topics covered in this book include bird behaviour and identification, water and nest sites, and deterring pests and predators.

Illustrated throughout with David Daly's beautiful specially commissioned artwork and stunning photography by David Cottridge, this attractive and informative guide reveals everything the reader needs to know about how to make the most of garden birdlife throughout the year.
