We all enjoy contact with wild creatures and birds must be among the most fascinating to watch. The joy of seeing swallows return in spring and the resident robin following every turn of your spade in winter is incalculable.

But another thought is even more spell binding.

Over thousands of years the behaviour of these wild creatures has hardly changed, yet their surroundings have been transformed. Before people built houses and gardens, swallows nested in caves and robins

followed the diggings of wild boar!


The birdtable camera is one of our most popular features.

We get many requests for advice on attracting birds to your own gardens so I hope you

find the following pages useful and they add to your wildlife watching enjoyment.
