How to Help Birds Make the Most of Your Garden.
These days people are keener than ever to attract birds to their gardens. This is the first book to explain how to make the most of the garden you have, whether it is a balcony, a courtyard or simply a window ledge.
Featuring seven full-page garden plan illustrations by Gill Tomblin, the book covers all different types of garden: window ledge, balcony, terrace or roof terrace, small suburban, large suburban and country garden. Each one is supplemented by checklists that suggest the best nest-boxes, feeders and baths to install, and also the best sorts of plants to cultivate - there is also a section on unusual gardens, such as those near the coast.
Subsequent chapters look in more detail at caring for birds, providing protection from predators, and identification information. Another innovative feature is the inclusion of a bird calendar which explains season-by-season the different birds you are likely to see in each type of garden, and the correct type of food to provide at different times of the year.
