Description: "Here is the second Ladybird book about common British birds, their nests and eggs. Once again Allen Seaby has painted the full-colour illustrations, and the text tells you where to look for each bird and something of its habits and its nest. The eggs are also illustrated in full colour, and are shown actual size. There is an index at the end of the book."
In true Ladybird fashion, there are stunning full-page illustrations on every other page. Pastedowns and endpapers illustrated with a blue monochrome 'open-winged' ladybird pattern.
