Stunning Beauty of our Native Birds
on 21 November 2016
Fabulous photographic images of our native birds in their natural habitat. My problem was that I bought the book on first taking up birdwatching and I would not really recommend it for a rank beginner like me. That is my own fault not a fault in the book which is exquisitely presented and printed and the photographs stunning.
Having said that, a rank beginner really needs an illustrated guide which points out features to look for when establishing the identity of a type of bird actual birds, doing actual birdy things are the goal of birdwatching but telling your Dunnock from your Tree Sparrow is tricky and you really need stuff like leg colour, wing bar details, eye markings etc, pointed out in block capitals when starting out.
