Telegraph offers free bird guide and CD

Friday, January 28th, 2011

With the Big Garden Birdwatch coming up this weekend, the Telegraph newspaper is offering readers a free 52-page booklet, the Essential Guide to Garden Birds, and a CD of garden bird song.

Both are produced in partnership with the RSPB, organisers of the Big Garden Birdwatch, and the paper also thanks a number of birding websites and forums for their support, so the quality should be pretty good.

The guide is available in Saturday’s paper and profiles the 50 most common garden birds in order of frequency, using the RSPB’s own illustrations, as well as offering advice on what to feed birds and how to attract them to your garden.

The CD is available with the Sunday paper. Called Dawn Chorus, it features recordings of three different birds.
