Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to British Birds by Bill Bailey

‘When herons are spooked they have a habit of vomiting as a defence.  Half-digested pieces of eel and water vole skull on your head it not a good look.  Just so you know.’

Bill Bailey’s Remarkable Guide to British Birds is all about comedian Bailey’s love of birds.  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.  Whether it’s what they eat, where they fly to or how they communicate, these birds are always fascinating, and Bailey introduces us to their weird and wonderful ways in a manner that is always entertaining.

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.

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.”

A beautifully and originally designed hardback, it will delight Bailey’s fans as well as those who like a bit of armchair escapism.
