Birdlife in and around our towns

Taking a football theme this leaflet looks at eleven birds that can be seen in the parks and gardens of our urban areas.

The keen eyed Kestrel guards the goal while the nimble midfield pairing of the Blue Tit and Great Tit serve the powerful strike force, the Magpie and the Rook.

 Cover of Birdlife in and around our towns Birdlife... is packed with handy tips to help our garden birds.

Find out what plants you can grow to attract birds into your garden, why you should scrub your bird tables and where to put up bird boxes.
