Packed with natural history facts, folklore and literary appearances for more than 70 of Britain’s birds. A fascinating and charming guide that will make a perfect gift for anyone who loves birds and natural Britain. Did you know that according to legend blackbirds were originally white? Or that the number of times you hear a cuckoo determines how many children you’ll have? Or that woodpeckers have special shock absorbers built into their beaks? Or that in 1958 a puffin was blown inland and knocked a man off his bicycle near Bromley? 

There are 40 beautiful custom illustrations in the book too, which will help beginners to identify the birds.
