This book teaches you everything you need to know to ensure a happy life for the birds in your garden or on your balcony. You’ll get tips about the right plants, the best bird boxes and much more besides.

The book is illustrated throughout with masses of beautiful photographs of birds in Norwegian settings.

Anne’s garden is teeming with songbirds that eat, drink, play, bathe, flirt and sleep. Her twittering garden guests are a source of great life and joy, and complete the garden with their colours, movements, sounds and personalities. They also combat pests and contribute to biological diversity.

In this richly illustrated brook, she takes you right up close to the different birds and their idiosyncrasies, telling you in an inspiring way about the best ways to create a bird-friendly outdoor space. Her charming, instructive and beautiful book is this year’s perfect gift for bird lovers.
