This fold-out guide covers top 50 birds found in gardens and parks, including ponds and rivers.
Gardens and parks are wonderful places for bird watching. Making a list of garden birds is a great first step into wildlife identification. Some species are present throughout the year, while others are summer or winter visitors only.
Of course a few species, like Blackbird and Robin, are instantly recognisable. But for others you might need to take a closer look. Is that a Greenfinch or a Siskin at the bird feeder? Can you tell apart a Blue Tit from a Great Tit? How about a Bullfinch from a Chaffinch? This guide can help!
Designed for speedy bird identification, this guide features beautiful colour paintings by Chris Shields. Accompanying text on the reverse side covers body size, food, key identification notes and conservation status.
Don’t forget if you want to attract more Birds to your Garden, adding bird feeders is a great help. Or plant more bird friendly plants such as hawthorn, rowan or crab apple which will provide berries in autumn. Birds will also need water for drinking and bathing so providing saucers of water and bird baths are essential for their well-being. Nest boxes provide shelter and great places to lay their eggs.
If you want to add any of the above to your garden, please have a look at our Wildlife section.
