How to be a Bad Birdwatcher Hardback

4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)

Description

Even the baddest birdwatcher in the world knows something about birds.

Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be an anoraked twitcher with top-of-the-range binoculars to have a good time admiring our often-neglected feathered friends in the sky.

In this revolutionary approach to ornithology self-confessed bad birdwatcher Simon Barnes gives us the confidence and motivation to get pleasure from one of the simplest, cheapest hobbies there are: watching birds...without letting birdwatching get in the way.

Fuuny. More of the philoosophy of birdwatching. Doesn't actually contain any descriptions of any birds. But then there are 000s of other books that do, wheras this is the only book I know of that will consol you after a wet day not seeing anything - because of course you did see alot of things you just failed to recognise why they were interesting.

Really enjoyable book. It has regenerated my interest in birds. It sums up the seeing a great-spotted woodpecker moment brilliantly.
