A Guide to Farmland Birds | BBC Radio 4 August 2011

Mon-Fri, 15-19 August 2011

A series of five practical and engaging guides to help you identify Britain’s commonest farmland birds.

Brett Westwood is joined by keen birdwatcher Stephen Moss on an arable farm in Wiltshire, whilst wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson provides high quality recordings of the calls and songs of the birds under discussion. Each programme focuses on birds of a different habitat and not only is there advice on how to recognise birds visually, but also how to identify them from their calls and songs.

This series complements previous series : A Guide to Garden Birds, A Guide to Woodland Birds, A Guide to Water Birds and A Guide to Coastal Birds.
