About this deal

igast linnust on foto ka olemas, nii et on võimalik teda selle järgi enamvähem määrata - aga Bailey on ise ka joonistanud neid. They have become a real source of joy to me and as some of them have quite distinguishing features it's good to see them back each day and getting braver in terms of how close they get to you for food and how long they stay in your company. All distributable profits from the RSPB's wholly owned subsidiary RSPB Sales Limited (registered office: The Lodge, Sandy, Bedfordshire SG19 2DL, registered in England under company registration no. Bill Bailey and birds wrapped together in a pocket sized book - for a handy pick-me-up you can't get better than this. 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!

We hope you will be delighted with every purchase, but if not, we will offer you a replacement or a full refund - whatever the reason. 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.If you're a parent who'd like to appear a bit clever when your child asks you the name of a bird; if you want to find a new and healthy hobby that takes you outdoors; or whether, quite simply, you want to understand a bit more about our natural environment and have a laugh at the same time, this is the perfect companion book to have. Farmers have been messing with the environment and destroying birds either indirectly through their actions or deliberately culling for centuries.

A beautifully and originally designed hardback, it will delight Bailey's fans as well as those who like a bit of armchair escapism. Caveat: it is not a comprehensive guide, and is not designed as a compendium for keen bird watchers. loved this book, very informative, full of bonus facts and some interesting articles about birds over the years. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Normally so he can share an anecdote about the time he spotted one, stories which clearly bring him great glee.You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

Considering its his favourite bird I thought his implication that peregrine numbers plummeted and recovered due to the culling programme in WWII to protect carrier pigeons was misrepresenting the science, but otherwise it was all time well spent in good company. Like my new found friends the birds, this book brings a lot of joy, at least two or three laughs and smiles per page as well as some great facts (and bonus facts). 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 visual feast - it is packed with illustrations, sketches and notes by Bailey - as well as informative, it is funny and insightful, and positively crackles with energy, knowledge and wit as he takes us on a journey around the British isles, zooming in on those birds that enthuse him the most. The main thing I have learnt from this book is that Bill Bailey has a drinking problem, I’ve never seen so main stains from tea/coffee (I didn’t lick the pages so not sure which one it was), there were splashes and rings from his mug all over the pages.
