Bill Bailey´s Best of British Birds is a comprehensive handbook that incorporates Bailey´s knowledge, insight and enthusiasm, as well as his legendary wit. Whether you´re a parent who´d like to appear more knowledgeable when your child asks you the name of a bird; whether 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, this is the perfect companion book to have.
Alongside music and stand-up, one of Bailey´s favourite pastimes is birdwatching, which he has been doing since he was a child in the West Country. His earliest memories are of family outings with parents, grandparents and cousins, ticking the birds off in his little Observer´s Book of Birds. 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´.
An exquisite hardback fully illustrated by acclaimed cartoonist Quinton Winter, it will delight Bailey´s fans as well as those who like a bit of armchair escapism.
