Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you. The prose is as charming as it is informative, with the sort of conversational flourishes you might hope for from a comedian.

I don't count them, or make lists, but I do love watching their behaviour and interaction with each other. He was also the host of Bill Bailey's Birdwatching Bonanza in January 2010, and wrote and presented his award-winning documentary about Alfred Russel Wallace, Bill Bailey's Jungle Hero, in 2013. loved this book, very informative, full of bonus facts and some interesting articles about birds over the years. He mentioned many bird conservation organisations, code of conduct etc, so I would have appreciated little note/info on wildlife rehabilitation and attempt to discourage readers from rehabbing themselves.

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. Comedian and musician Bill Bailey turns his attention to the (mostly) common birds of the UK, with comic asides and sketches that suggest that he should stick to his day job, even if they're charmingly rendered. This does remind me of a Mr Bean book I read as a kid, the stains, ripped pages, images stuck to page and funny little illustrations were done by Mr.

I was a little saddened to find that my favourite British bird - the swallow - didn't make the cut, but in general there was a good spread of seabirds, waterfowl, raptors, and wee garden birds, and all the common corvids were given due consideration, too. I was expecting something more like Mark Cocker’s Birders, Simon Barnes, How to be a bad birder, or Bill Oddie’s Little Black Book of Birds. This is one of those books that as you read it you can hear the voice of the author actually saying the words in your head.

The paperback pocket version is pretty small but doesn't lose its charm without a hardback and it's small enough to take out and about. It is not included in promotions available to our main range products, as stated in our terms of service. The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. Very enjoyable (larger) pocket sized read 😊 Bill's usuall wit, interjects his own sketches and observations, in a scrapbook style of presentation. He is perhaps most well known for his live shows - most recently Qualmpeddler, Limboland, and The Remarkable Guide to the Orchestra.

Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. I read the hardback version, but it is worth noting that the paperback "Pocket Version" has some pages for notes, recommended birding sites by region, and a bird-spotting checklist at the back, which is a nice touch. In accordance with The Post Office, the last recommended date for Christmas posting is 18th December (2nd Class) and 20th December (First class).Each of the mini-chapters on birds has facts and details of where to find them or in the case of the bittern, where you can go and look and generally fail to see them. I did find myself learning various little facts which proved quite interesting - like kestrels not building their own nests and dippers having solid legs - while the artwork that adorns the book is amateurish but funny.
