British Bird Songs

Paul Doherty

Features specially filmed footage of 43 species of our commoner birds. It begins with an introduction to bird song and then features close-up footage of the birds. The bird songs are superb listening on their own, but the commentary provides a wealth of hints and tips on the diagnostic features of each species and how to recognise them.

"If you are just starting to get to grips with bird song, this is an excellent introduction and I recommend it fully."
