The first ever RSPB-endorsed audio and print guide to enjoying and understanding the birdsong of Britain's best known bird species.

Birdsong is one of the greatest and most accessible wildlife pleasures that people can experience, even in urban areas. This brand new book and accompanying CD will help people identify a range of common and charismatic British birds by sound

Birdsong is one of the most powerful means of connecting people with nature. Wild sounds in nature have the power to lift people's spirits; they have inspired poets and composers and can evoke time, place and season. Wild sounds can also carry powerful conservation messages--the reduction in birdsong in our countryside is a potent signal and a symbol of the loss of nature.

The reality, however, is that many people don't understand or recognize what they are listening to in nature. This beautiful, full-color book and narrated CD of brand new recordings will help people to learn about the sounds and calls of the commonest birds in Britain, and reveal when and why birds make these sounds.

Adrian Thomas is a lifelong birdwatcher and naturalist, and has worked at the RSPB for nineteen years in a wide variety of roles. After contributing for many years toBirdWatchingmagazine, his writing now regularly features inNature's HomeandGarden Answersand has also appeared in a range of other magazines.He is the author of three books;RSPB Gardening for Wildlife(Bloomsbury, 2010),winner of the national Garden Media Guild award;The Birds of Sussex(BTO, 2014); andBest Birdwatching Sites in Sussex(Buckingham Press, 2003).

“Adrian's knowledge of the science and majesty of birdsong resonates from every page as he tells how to recognise the vocalisations of 250 species, opening a new dimension of birdwatching to novice and expert.” —Sunday Express
