How about a book that can pro­duce wet­land bird sounds at the touch of a but­ton?

ANDREA PINNINGTON & CAZ BUCK­ING­HAM Fine Feather Press, HB, £12.99, you pay £10.99 by quot­ing BW-REV

The lat­est in a much-praised se­ries of books that pro­vide sounds to ac­com­pany the text, this vol­ume deals with a dozen fa­mil­iar wet­land species. Orig­i­nally pro­duced for chil­dren, you can see why the books have an adult fan­base, too – for any be­gin­ner bird­watcher they pro­vide a quick and easy way to start as­so­ci­at­ing the right songs and calls with the right species. The text could be a bit more com­pre­hen­sive, if we're nit­pick­ing, but all the essen­tials are there and it looks good. That's half the bat­tle when you're try­ing to at­tract young­sters into the some­times for­bid­ding world of bird­ing.
