I know how big a part birdwatching has played in his life, so I can’t wait for Hamza to share his superb stories and incredible ornithological knowledge with the world. Read more about the condition New: A new, unread, unused book in perfect condition with no missing or damaged pages. Our Branches aim to raise awareness and understanding of dyslexia by holding meetings which are open to the public. Descriptions on a page brought to life by Hamza's vivid visual and auditory descriptions and excellent anecdotes about birds both familiar and rarely observed.

Whether you need a companion on your next expedition or simply wish to dip in and out as you learn more, Be a Birder is fit for every purpose, and encourages us all to discover the joy of birdwatching. Wildlife cameraman and Dyslexia Scotland Ambassador Hamza Yassin has written a beginners’ guide to bird watching. The synopsis says: "Hamza’s Wild World is packed with incredible facts, Hamza’s Top Tens, warm, funny stories, and big topic features about our planet and everything that lives on it, underneath the sea and in the sky. hopefully this book will as it appears to have done so, provide a gateway into bird watching for my mum (who already likes walking).

He made his first television appearance on the CBeebies show Let's Go for a Walk, in the role of Ranger Hamza, and was featured in a book based on the series, which won the Sainsbury's Children's Book Prize for Best Activity Book 2021. Hamza lives in a rural part of the west coast of Scotland, with wildlife and nature right on his doorstep as a constant inspiration for his work. Each bird chosen from that habitat is given its scientific name, whether it is easy to spot or not, given a three word description, such as slow, floating glider for the Red Kite and following this, many interesting facts. Hehas filmed for BBC’s wildlife documentary series Springwatch, filming a sparrowhawk sequence for Silverback’s The Hunt (narrated by Sir David Attenborough), polar bears for Sky’s series Predators and most recently capturing incredible eagle footage for BBC One’s ‘Wild Isles’ in which Sir David Attenborough explores the British Isles, including the extraordinary wildlife surrounding Hamza’s home in Scotland. Whether you're spotting common garden birds or hoping to catch sight of the more obscure, Be a Birder invites us all to stop, step outside and listen, and open our eyes to the beauty of these incredible creatures.

The “joyful, introductory guide for the budding birdwatcher” will be published in hardback on 3rd August 2023. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. In this beautifully illustrated guide, featuring fifty of Hamza's favourite birds, you will learn how to start identifying birds, understand their behaviour and movements, and find even more exciting birds, wherever you are. The first third is the author's autobiography, followed by a few pages to introduce the fundamentals of bird watching. One of the good things about this book is that it can also be used as a reference book to dip in and out of, perhaps as a more accessible version than dedicated bird guidebooks.Gaia has acquired Be a Birder from Scottish wildlife cameraman, presenter and “Strictly Come Dancing” star Hamza Yassin. However, IMO, nothing is going to beat Simon Barnes, 'How To Be A Bad Bird Watcher', for getting to the soul of the matter.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Hamza's Wild World is filled with fascinating information about the animal kingdom - in the sky, on the land and in the sea. Today, Hamza is known as Ranger Hamza on the hugely popular CBeebies live-action shows Let’s Go For A Walk and Ranger Hamza’s Eco Quest.I was fascinated to read that the colour of the eyes of owls can tell you what time of day they hunt. Since then, he’s made appearances on “The One Show”, “Countryfile” and “Animal Park”, and presented his own documentaries on Channel 4, including “Scotland: My Life in the Wild” and “Scotland: Escape to the Wilderness”. Discover the wonderful world of birdwatching with wildlife cameraman Hamza Yassin - as seen on BBC One's Strictly Come Dancing.
