Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. A gentle introduction to some of the most interesting birds in Britain, done with Bill Bailey’s characteristic style and wit. As he has said about those formative years, "birdwatching gave a purpose to the day and that philosophy has carried on into my adult life".

My youngest daughter is going to read this next and I think she’ll enjoy it mainly because of the interesting gruesome facts included, a bit like the horrible histories books.
