About this book

The Birds and the Bees series was designed for Vintage Classics by Timorous Beasties, the Scottish studio famous for their designs inspired by the natural world. Books in this series are beautifully designed reissues of the finest British nature writing.

Originally published in 2009. Beginning in summer with clouds of breeding sea birds in Shetland and ending with crepuscular night jars like giant moths in the heart of England, Tim Dee maps his own observations and encounters over four decades of tracking birds across the globe. He tells of near-global birds like sparrows, starlings and ravens, and exotic species, like electrically coloured hummingbirds in California and bee-eaters and broad bills in Africa. Dee restores us to the primacy of looking, and takes us outside, again and again, to marvel at what is flying about us.
