More About This Title A Guide To British Woodland Birds
Woods and forests are full of birds and, although you might not immediately see them, you will certainly hear them. This practical and informative audio guide, recorded in springtime in the Forest of Dean, will help you to recognise the birds you see - and those you only hear - when you’re walking in one of Britain’s beautiful woodlands. Each of the programmes focuses on a different group of birds, starting with the Nuthatch and the brightly coloured Woodpeckers, small birds and wonderful songbirds like the Blackcap, the Garden Warbler and the elusive Nightingale. Then there are the specialists, who need coniferous planting to thrive the Siskin, Goldcrest, Coal Tit and the more exotic Crossbill. Finally, there are the big ones, Sparrowhawks, Jays, Jackdaws and Owls. Whether you’re a novice or an experienced birdwatcher, this series will help you to tell the Chiffchaff from the Willow Warbler, the Redstart from the Pied Flycatcher and to enjoy the astonishing variety of bird life in British woodlands.
