Packed with interesting facts, environmental and habitat information as well as easy to achieve planting ideas, this is a practical, illustrated guide for people wanting to encourage more birdlife to visit their outdoor space. By gardening sustainably, you can make a considerable difference to the wildlife populations in your immediate area, as well as in the country as a whole.
While some birds are residents we'll see from day to day, others are fleeting visitors - but they're all potential guests in our gardens if we make the environment suitably welcoming. Planting for Garden Birds is aimed at the keen amateur gardener and those hoping to take their knowledge and experience to the next level. Charmingly illustrated with delicate drawings, this a jewel of a guide to treasure.
