Description / Birds: Paintings of 100 British Birds

You probably know the comedian, artist and writer Jim Moir by another name, Vic Reeves, but it’s as a painter that his popularity has soared again.

Each double page spread of his book is dedicated to a single species, painted in exquisite detail alongside the scientific name and an interesting fact.

Meet the red-backed shirke, Lanius collurio, who's named after the Old English word for shriek and the charming goldcrest, Regulus regulus, who hid in the feathers of an eagle.
