In the fifth of our series of bird guides, Brett Westwood is joined once again by enthusiastic birdwatcher Stephen Moss, and with the help of recordings made by wildlife sound recordist Chris Watson they present this knowledgeable and entertaining guide to the songs, calls and cries of the birds you may see and hear around Britain's farmlands.

Packed with useful information and handy tips, each programme focuses on a different habitat, starting with arable fields and birds such as Skylark, Grey Partridge and Lapwing; then winter pasture and birds including Fieldfare and Golden Plover; hedgerow (Yellowhammer and Turtle Dove), copse (Pheasant and Little Owl), and farmyard (Jackdaw and Swallow).

Their advice on how to recognise birds visually and how to identify them by their sounds will soon enable you to sort out your House Sparrow from your Tree Sparrow, and will appeal to both budding ornithologists and experienced birdwatchers, as well as walkers and ramblers who are curious about the birds they encounter while out and about in the countryside.
