About this book

An anthology of contemporary poetry, with original artwork, celebrating our love of birds and the enrichment that encounters with them bring to our lives. Fifty pence from the sale of each book will be donated to the RSPB.

"Here are beautiful word pictures of birds, giving new and different insights. Without birds, our lives would be enormously diminished and this anthology will hopefully encourage people to appreciate them more and support their conservation. Lovely illustration"
- Dafila Scott

"A chorus of new poems on well-known birds – wry, witty, representational but above all, celebratory, reminding us of the fierce, almost unnameable delights offered by these winged creatures. This wide-ranging selection highlights their beauty, vulnerability and constant need for habitat protection [...] .a book to read and savour"
- Katherine Gallagher
