A very popular audio guide which helps to identify the birds that come to our gardens. This download features top-quality recordings of the typical songs and calls of the fifty-two species most commonly found in British gardens. The perfect introduction to learning and identifying bird sounds in your garden.
i expected this to have running commentry alongside the birdsongs whistle identifiying what type of bird i am listening to. as the title suggests "guide to " british birds.but no.no spoken word at all.just birdsong. so i still cant identify what bird i can hear in the garden. i could listen to this stuff for free on dab radio on "birdsong" station. missleading title i think.very poor.
Not for identification!
This is essentially a continuous solid hour of bird song clips, but with nothing to tell you which birds they are. Might be nice as a relaxation tape, but hopeless (at least in this version from iTunes) if you want to learn to identify birds by their song.
Songs of Garden Birds: The definative Audio guide to british garden birds
I thought I'd be able to use this as an aid to learning bird calls. Instead there is no identification on the audio of the birds, you can print of a couple of sheets of paper which have the birds on but again you end up counting which track is which to find out what your listening to. Very dissapointing. The audio quality is fantastic but a guiding voice would have helped.
