When we see a bird, do we really see it? It’s perfectly possible to go through life with an almost total disregard for birds. However, in Britain, there are more than a million members of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. And thanks to Instagram – and other networking sites – there is also a growing number of bird photographers opening our eyes to unimagined treasures. From the giants of our skies to the sweetest singing garden warbler, from London street to Indian jungle and taking in countries as far afield as Albania and Australia, this book is, in a way, also a story of the author’s life. Starting with the smallest bird in each chapter, building towards the biggest – and using his photographs as a guide – ‘How To See Birds’ takes us on a very personal birdwatching journey and, in the process, helps us to really see birds.
