GeoffGeoff works within the Primrose marketing team, primarily on anything related to graphics and design.

He loves to keep up with the latest in music, film and technology whilst also creating his own original art and his ideal afternoon would be lounging in a sunny garden surrounded by good food, drink and company provided there is a football nearby.

While not an expert, his previous job involved landscaping so he’s got some limited experience when gardening.

For millions of Brits a garden is something to share – with family, friends and of course, birds. While you can spot many beautiful birds in a British backyard, there are some species that don’t flock to our shores. Whether you’re a seasoned twitcher or have trouble telling a blue tit from a blue jay, we hope you’ll enjoy our colourful chart of Backyard Birds From Around The World, which gives you an up-close view of some of the most common garden birds from a number of countries across the globe.

Although you’re unlikely to see an Indian roller or spotted pardalote taking a wash in your bird bath anytime soon, we hope this infographic inspires you to create a welcoming home for our feathered friends in time for summer!
