Be A Birder By Hamza Yassin

In My Bookshelf


This book was my best purchase from the Hay Festival Winter Weekend, I bought it for my son who is a keen birdwatcher. Famous for appearing on the TV show Strictlty Come Dancing, Hamza is a wildllife photographer and a TV presenter. At his event at the Festival, Hamza spoke with great passion about his love of birdwatching and how he became fascinated by all things avian. This book is an entertaining introduction to the subject, with advice on how to get started and what equipment you will need. With beautiful illustrations this is a guide for novices, peppered with stories of his birdwatching adventures and showcases 50 of Hamza’s favourite birds. With Hamza’s help you will be able to identify birds, find out more about their behaviour and learn to work out the best places to find them

Web Be A Birder by Hamza Yassin

At the beginning of last year’s Strictly, Hamza was unknown to most viewers but his quiet, gentle manner and natural charisma, plus his dancing ability of course, helped him to charm the audience and win the competition. Anyone who has watched wildlife documentaries will have seen his wildlife photography, Hamza has worked with Sir David Attenborough but now also presents TV programmes such as Countryfile and CBeebies Lets Go For a Walk. His extensive ornithological knowledge, coupled with his infectious enthusiasm for this subject and huge likeability are a winning combination
As an ardent conservationist he is now able to use his newly found celebrity status to try to influence decision making and gain publicity for conservation projects.
This is the perfect book to find a way into birdwatching or just gather a little more information about the birds you see on daily walks
