Join Britain’s best-known birdwatcher, Bill Oddie, on a journey through the gardens he has known and owned during his life. Bill says: ‘I shall call this book a history – a history of my gardens. A history of their wildlife, and of my life. From a muddy backyard in Rochdale just after the war, to an unkempt tangle in suburban Birmingham during my teenage years, to a kid’s trampolinesized patio in Hampstead, to the ever-changing almost psychedelic ludicrous kaleidoscope of my current garden, which has been a lifesaver and an obsession for the past 25 years.’ From a first unexpected encounter with a Dunnock to a heroic one-legged Great Tit, and from a Feng Shui Fox to a stampede of 100 rats, it is clear that the wildlife outside our back doors never fails to entertain and amaze.
