British Birds and their Habitat
Suitable for: Adults
Sponsored by: English Nature
Available braille grades:
This collection is one of our members best-loved and most popular. The raised images cover some 24 birds grouped by the habitat in which they are likely to be found. One of the features that borrowers love is that the audio includes bird song – which makes for a wonderful listening and tactile experience!
Listen to an audio clip
A low-profile paradise of dykes and reed beds, alive in summer with the harsh chatter of reed and sedge warblers, and heady with the mingling of marshy smells; mud, reeds and water mint. The Washlands of East Anglia are storage areas for flood water. Huge numbers of waterfowl are attracted here in winter and the fenlands also support great numbers of breeding ducks and waders. On a cold winter's day, it is good to be in the warm observation hide, looking over the vast wetlands and listening to the bugling calls of the Whooper and Bewick Swans, gathering to be fed.
- A collection of raised tactile pictures.
- Audio descriptions with music and sound effects in your chosen format of either CD or USB.
- An A4 large print colour image pack or postcard pack.

A real treatThe thermoforms are very easy to follow and the shapes and textures really bring the birds to life.Library Member
Wonderful albumI really loved every word of it. Since moving I have been blessed with so many birds in my garden so the bird songs were of particular interest to me.Library Member
