There are several excellent books on the market which offer a handy reference guide to British birds and wildlife. Their problem is that they can only offer you a couple of still photographs or drawings of each bird. This "Comprehensive Guide to British Birds" is so much more effective. Divided into three groups - birds of the town, the country, or the coast - twenty four birds are featured in each category. You get a detailed study of each one, with several minutes to observe it in flight, nesting, feeding, etc., getting to know it from every angle; the commentary describes its habits, habitat, changes in its plumage, easy hints to recognise it and distinguish it from similar birds. You learn how to tell a rook from a jackdaw or carrion crow, how to recognise a female siskin, and so on.
The DVD is menu driven - look up the bird you want to study, click on the button, and hey presto! Alternatively, you can play your way through all seventy-two to familiarise yourself with the most common British birds.
It's a very useful starter kit for the novice, and, if you want to impress your kids, this will give you a lot of credibility - in fact, let them watch it, they'll learn quickly. It is a starter kit, but no less useful for that.Read more ›
This DVD is excellent for bird Identification by sight, but unfortunately it doesn't explicitly illustrate the way each bird "sings".
I thought this DVD would have included this, but it doesn't.
Its only for the lack of this that I give it 4 stars instead of 5.
If you really want to know bird song, you would be better buying a CD with bird song recordings on it.
It contains all of the more common birds that we are likely to see every day, although you may have to go further afield than your own garden and also the rarer birds that can be a little more difficult to find.
Special menus highlight various facts about each of the 72 birds featured from diet and wingspan, to population numbers and breeding locations. All in all a reasonably comprehensive DVD and well worth having, although I do prefer my books.
