Format: Paperback
This is a very timely book for me because my thoughts are turning towards how I can make my garden more attractive to wildlife as I'm redesigning a couple of my borders. This book is perfect for this as it contains lots of information on which trees, shrubs and other plants are the most attractive to the widest variety of birds. Not only that, the tables of information are broken down by species, so I can make sure I have plenty of plants which are attractive to the birds I've seen in my neighbourhood.

The first part of the book is all about understanding what a bird needs from a garden. It's not only about plants for food or shelter, it's also roosting sites and providing good observation posts. The concept of wildlife corridors and a garden's role in this is also explained, as well as how a bird-friendly garden is ultimately friendly for all the creatures which are needed to support them.

There then follows a section on the key needs for breeding and feeding. After a general look at bird territory, nesting materials and sites plus the key influences on breeding and feeding, there's a bird-by-bird guide to what individual species need. The list of birds included is much wider than I expected and reflects the wide variety of garden locations and sizes we have.

The next section is on gardening techniques and the types of plants to grow to encourage birds. Here there's a special consideration for small town gardens, balconies and patios. This is swiftly followed by man-made provisions. This is probably the aspect most of us focus on, but forms a relatively small part of the book. It includes the expected supplementary feeders and how to make a nest box, but also looks at how to make a pond or bog garden to widen the variety of habitats available for birds.

I don't even have my own garden at the moment, still living with the folks who are very resistant to my not-so-subtle pleas on the behalf of our local wildlife. But there was something about this book I could not resist. I must confess that I did not actually buy it from Amazon, but rather from the shop in which I work. As soon as I picked the book up I knew I was going to buy it, it is one of those books that just feels so right! It has matte pages, a matte cover and a lovely solid feel about it. The pages are oh so thick, good quality paper and I allowed myself a little glance at the text which was just irresistible! But I put it down again, due to the fact I don't have a garden, and told myself that I could buy it if it hadn't already sold by the end of the day.

I only lasted until lunchtime.

On getting the book home I sat down and read. I have had it for about a week now and I still find new information every time I open it. It is like a Tardis, so much more in it that you think there is going to be! Everything is relevant, clear and nicely laid out. The pictures are pretty and inspiring and it is just a wonderful book to own. I have already made two nest boxes to their specifications, and their advice on where to place them is spotless. I know of many people who take the boxes down over winter but now I am able to provide the better advice of leaving them up (after cleaning them out) as a roosting place. Perfect.

My mother enjoyed this book as she is fond of her garden and has a few different kind of birds coming to visit. I think she may already know some of the stuff in this book though.
