Secret Lives of British Birds
by Dominic Couzens
Illustrated by Peter Partington
Exposes the extraordinary hidden world of some of our most familiar birds beyond the confines of our gardens and parks. We learn the secrets of romance from the Mute Swans, meet the perfect father in the Guillemot, the enstranged couple of Chiffchaffs who share the same territory.
We meet the ultimate killers by day, Peregrine, and by night, Barn Owl. At the same time we find out how all these birds cope with living in seemingly inhospitable habitats such as reedbeds, lonely moorland or out over the sea.
