Trophies & Reviews

"A veritable treasure trove for all ornithologists, British Garden Birds holds a comprehensive A-Z list of British birds, including information about identification, feeding and conservation. There’s also handy MP3 audio files of individual birdsong, making it even easier for you to identify the elusive winged-friend in your garden. If you’re feeling confident, you could try the bird identification quiz to name more than 160 birds, based on photographs and sound clips. The information page answers common queries about birds and birdwatching, including how to stop birds flying into your window!" - Best birdwatching websites

BBC Countryfile Magazine, August 2009

"This is a fantastic site covering everything that you might want to know about garden birding. Based on a Sheffield garden, it just goes to show what an enthusiastic individual can produce. Practical hints, photos, charts, sounds, quizzes, etc. Anyone interested in garden birds should look here." - Gordon Hamlett

"This is one of the best websites on garden birds that I have come across. It's a labour of love that has attracted several awards for its clarity of design and ease of use. For sheer volume of information the encyclopaedic bird guide beats most bird books hands down. the data is presented in a variety of ways, including charts, photographs and audio clips, in addition to chunks of text. As well as being an excellent tool for identification, you'll find hints on providing the preferred food of each individual species. The information section is aimed at expanding our understanding of garden visitors, and is jam-packed with facts and features on life expectancy, bird song, moulting and breeding. The guest book and discussion board are sources of ideas and support, and you'll also find a quiz, a diary and a survey on environmentally sensitive issues."
