'Prose from a poet and a personal take on the spectacles' Chris Packham,
author of Fingers in the Sparkle Jar Shortlisted for Richard Jefferies
Society & White Horse Bookshop Literary Prize 2017Longlisted for the
Wainwright Prize 2017Britain is a nation of bird-lovers. However, few
of us fully appreciate the sheer scale, variety and drama of our avian
life. From city-centre hunters to vast flocks straight out of the Arctic
wilderness, much-loved dawn songsters to the exotic invaders of
supermarket car parks, a host of remarkable wildlife spectacles are
waiting to be discovered right outside our front doors.
In A Sky Full of Birds, poet and nature writer Matt Merritt shares his passion for birdwatching by taking us to some of the great avian gatherings that occur around the British isles - from ravens in Anglesey and raptors on the Wirral, to Kent nightingales and Scottish capercaillies. By turns lyrical, informative and entertaining, he shows how natural miracles can be found all around us, if only we know where to look for them. A Sky Full of Birds is the perfect read for avid birdwatchers and a beautiful gift for lovers of nature and poetic prose.
