When we see a bird, do we actually notice it? Many of us don't. But in Britain, there are more than a million members of the RSPB and, thanks to social media, there is also a growing number of bird photographers.
From the giant raptors of our skies to the sweetest singing garden robin, from the streets of London to the Masai Mara, 'How To See Birds' offers us the key to a thrilling world. Using his photographs as a guide, Matthew Stadlen takes us on a very personal birdwatching journey and, in the process, helps us to see birds - to really see birds! The book also includes a foreword by Martin Harper (Global Conservation Director, RSPB).

"Very pretty pics of very pretty birds."--David Baddiel. "Bright and beautiful - the photographs alone are stunning"--Rory Bremner "Matt Stadlen turns out to be the Audubon of the digital camera - his photos are a lark at dawn, a nightingale in moonlight - in the best way he takes the bird."--Simon Schama "Matt Stadlen's bird photography is exquisite. Each is caught by his lens for the briefest of moments - in flight, at rest, feeding or flirting - and held there in all their miraculous detail and beauty. A book that will bring fresh delight with every turn of the page."--Juliet Stevenson "An utterly enchanting view of the lives of birds - up close and personal."--Alan Rusbridger
