Details

‘Birdsong belongs to the birds, but we’ve spent an awful lot of time trying to make it ours too.’ These witty meditations of a birdwatcher explore how humans’ love of birdsong has influenced literature, music and science. They also reveal what such cultural responses say about our dreams and desires, even our ideas of Britishness – and what will be lost if human activity eventually silences the sounds from our trees and hedgerows.
