Birdy pick of the week: Our Garden Birds
It’s British, it’s birdy and it’s really rather beautiful – check out Matt Sewell‘s new book, Our Garden Birds: A Bird for Every Week of the Year (£4.50, Amazon). Naturally, I’m excited and delighted for Matt as his popular ‘bird of the week’ blog posts were the genesis for this compilation of his charming watercolours.
Accompanied by his inimitable observations of each bird’s distinctive character, Sewell has created his own quirky field guide to Britain’s most beloved birds. It would make a marvelous present and it’s gone straight to the top of my wishlist.
