I bought this book to fill in a heinous gap in my general knowledge. This book does the trick. Split into a chapter per calendar year, it provides information on various common garden birds relevant to that particular month. It's interesting, informative and nicely illustrated with a mix of colour drawings and photos. Still can't tell the difference between a crow and a rook mind you.
The second hand book 'Secret Lives of Garden Birds' hard back edition was bought to replace a paperback version that had suffered accidental water damage. It arrived quickly and was in excellent condition, almost as new. An excellent value for money replacement purchase.
