About this deal

If you're a parent who'd like to appear a bit clever when your child asks you the name of a bird; if you want to find a new and healthy hobby that takes you outdoors; or whether, quite simply, you want to understand a bit more about our natural environment and have a laugh at the same time, this is the perfect companion book to have. või et piiritaja poja esimene lend pesast välja on kohe lõunamaale, ei ole mingit kodu ümber harjutamist. siin sain ka selgust, mis vahe on viul, tuuletallajal, kalakotkal, rabapistrikul ja puna-harksabal (klge, Eestis vist ei ole puna-harksaba? Packed with the comedian's observations, illustrations and sketches, this edition is perfect for birdwatching expeditions, with new information for proper twitchers, including:* A 'British Birds' checklist * A list of the best birdwatching sites in the UK* Suggestions of bird spotting equipment* Information about joining a birdwatching clubBailey takes us on a journey around the British Isles, zooming in on those birds that enthuse him the most.

I did find myself learning various little facts which proved quite interesting - like kestrels not building their own nests and dippers having solid legs - while the artwork that adorns the book is amateurish but funny. I have not yet reached the status of fully-fledged twitcher, but I have approached the edge of the nest a few times and come close to leaving. I really enjoyed this book, and look forward to spotting some of the more unfamiliar species on future hikes in the British Isles. A fun little book, one to read if you're a fan of the author or quirky British humour rather than if you're a serious birder.Change country: -Select- Albania Algeria American Samoa Andorra Angola Anguilla Antigua and Barbuda Argentina Armenia Aruba Azerbaijan Republic Bahamas Bahrain Bangladesh Barbados Belarus Belgium Belize Benin Bermuda Bhutan Bolivia Bosnia and Herzegovina Botswana Brazil British Virgin Islands Brunei Darussalam Bulgaria Burkina Faso Burundi Cambodia Cameroon Canada Cape Verde Islands Cayman Islands Central African Republic Chad Chile China Colombia Comoros Cook Islands Costa Rica Cyprus Czech Republic Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast) Democratic Republic of the Congo Denmark Djibouti Dominica Dominican Republic Ecuador Egypt El Salvador Equatorial Guinea Eritrea Estonia Ethiopia Falkland Islands (Islas Malvinas) Fiji Finland France French Guiana French Polynesia Gabon Republic Gambia Georgia Ghana Gibraltar Greece Greenland Grenada Guadeloupe Guam Guatemala Guernsey Guinea Guinea-Bissau Guyana Haiti Honduras Hong Kong Hungary Iceland India Indonesia Iraq Ireland Israel Italy Jamaica Japan Jersey Jordan Kazakhstan Kenya Kiribati Kuwait Kyrgyzstan Laos Latvia Lebanon Lesotho Liberia Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Macau Macedonia Madagascar Malawi Malaysia Maldives Mali Malta Marshall Islands Martinique Mauritania Mauritius Mayotte Mexico Micronesia Moldova Monaco Mongolia Montenegro Montserrat Morocco Mozambique Namibia Nepal Netherlands Netherlands Antilles New Caledonia New Zealand Nicaragua Niger Nigeria Niue Norway Oman Pakistan Palau Panama Papua New Guinea Paraguay Peru Philippines Poland Portugal Puerto Rico Qatar Republic of Croatia Republic of the Congo Reunion Romania Rwanda Saint Helena Saint Kitts-Nevis Saint Lucia Saint Pierre and Miquelon Saint Vincent and the Grenadines San Marino Saudi Arabia Senegal Serbia Seychelles Sierra Leone Singapore Slovakia Slovenia Solomon Islands South Africa South Korea Spain Sri Lanka Suriname Swaziland Sweden Taiwan Tajikistan Tanzania Thailand Togo Tonga Trinidad and Tobago Tunisia Turkey Turkmenistan Turks and Caicos Islands Tuvalu Uganda United Arab Emirates United Kingdom Uruguay Uzbekistan Vanuatu Vatican City State Venezuela Vietnam Virgin Islands (U. I think he has been influenced by his years of bird watching and it’s nice to hear that when on tour he always finds time to have a look around to see what he can spot.

All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you! He mentioned many bird conservation organisations, code of conduct etc, so I would have appreciated little note/info on wildlife rehabilitation and attempt to discourage readers from rehabbing themselves.Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide To British Birds is described by publishers Quercus as "a collection of observations and thoughts about birds which incorporates Bailey's knowledge, insight and enthusiasm, as well as plenty of wry wit". A gentle introduction to some of the most interesting birds in Britain, done with Bill Bailey’s characteristic style and wit. I was mainly reading it for the fun trivia and anecdotes, but I can also see beginners learning ID easily from this book, as it’s easier to read than some of the more professional ID guides.

When watching Bill perform live I’ve always thought he was very birdlike, he always seems wide-eyed and a bit twitchy.

He is also the author of Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide to British Birds and Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide to Happiness.

His earliest memories are of family outings with parents, grandparents and cousins, ticking the birds off in his little Observer's Book of Birds.
