Your Christmas present problems solved

Looking for a special gift for someone who loves birds? We have several ideas. Why not join them up as BTO member with our BTO gift membership or give a Garden BirdWatch gift pack, both of which include regular magazines and a free joining gift. There's also the magnificant Bird Atlas 2007–11 which is packed full of information and, for those interested in migration, why not let them follow their own Cuckoo with a Cuckoo sponsorship gift pack.
