So, I wrote a book. And illustrated it. And it was a labour of love. 160 pages of birdly words and pictures. It's available now from all good book shops (or by clicking the link and trusting it to Amazon) Here's the "official" blurb...
I Like Birds explores the history and habits of 60 of Britain's most interesting, popular and prized species of bird.
From the coast to the heart of the countryside, each entry features a bold illustration that captures a bird's individual personality, bringing them to life through the pages of this book. As well as providing useful stats including breeding times, egg quantity, wingspan, diet, nest type and more this guide tells the story of each birds lifestyle, behaviour, distinguishing features and birdsong.
Dotted with lively anecdotes, plus binocular basics and an egg-opedia, whether you're simply interested in attracting more birds to your garden, or trekking deeper into the wild on your search for Britain's best avian wildlife, I Like Birds is the perfect companion for any beginner or avid birdwatcher.
