The British countryside is renowned for its natural beauty and diverse wildlife and any walk, whether it be in woodland, wetland or open country, is always accompanied by the varied songs and calls of our birdlife. This identification guide presents the sounds of 65 species that call the British countryside home, from songbirds such as the Yellowhammer, Skylark and Reed Warbler to game birds such as the Pheasant and Red-legged Partridge and birds of prey such as the Kestrel and Buzzard.
Each track includes a spoken introduction giving the name of the species. Track listing:

If you love listening to the sounds of different birds, this is a great book. There may be no story, but there doesn't need to be.
