About this deal

I was a little saddened to find that my favourite British bird - the swallow - didn't make the cut, but in general there was a good spread of seabirds, waterfowl, raptors, and wee garden birds, and all the common corvids were given due consideration, too.

Whether it's what they eat, where they fly to or how they communicate, these birds are always fascinating, and he introduces us to their weird and wonderful ways in a manner that is always entertaining. The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. A year ago we moved to a house where the garden and surrounding bushes and trees were home to a goodly number of birds. Alongside music and stand-up, one of Bailey's favorite pastimes is birdwatching, which he has been doing since he was a child in the West Country.seda, kes on Bill Bailey, pidin alustuseks googeldama, sest nimi tundus tuttav, aga kindel polnud, kust.

A gentle introduction to some of the most interesting birds in Britain, done with Bill Bailey’s characteristic style and wit. Our team is made up of book lovers who are dedicated to sourcing and providing the best books for kids. Yet the book is sincere in its attempts to offer a guide to Britain’s bird life, although it’s not comprehensive enough to be more than an entertainment for the more serious birder. This is a beginners guide more than anything else, Bill recommends starting bird-watching by try to find a pigeon, so if you know anybody showing an interest in birds then this will be a great gift for them.

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! A quick but rewarding read, Bill Bailey's endearing and light-hearted sketches, anecdotes, and reflections on his top 51 birds of Britain make Bill Bailey's Remarkable Guide to British Birds as amusing as it is informative (his observation that the Pied Wagtail has claimed the motorway services as its playground, for example, was particularly astute and diverting! Very enjoyable (larger) pocket sized read 😊 Bill's usuall wit, interjects his own sketches and observations, in a scrapbook style of presentation.

Bill Bailey has crafted a simple, and easy-to-read, list of popular (and some not-so-popular) birds that live in, or frequent, the British Isles. ilmselgelt raamatu valisin lindude, mitte autori pärast, aga eks mind ahvatles küll veidi idee linnumäärajast, mille on kirjutanud niisama linnuhuviline, mitte ornitoloog. The books featured on this site are aimed primarily at readers aged 13 or above and therefore you must be 13 years or over to sign up to our newsletter.

It’s not an in-depth guide by any stretch of the imagination, but an entertaining book for a short read (I read it ona coach journey in under 2 hours), or to dip into. When watching Bill perform live I’ve always thought he was very birdlike, he always seems wide-eyed and a bit twitchy.
