My latest book Flying High! (Discover the poetry in British birds), with a Foreword by RSPB Vice-President Prof. Sir John Lawton, is out now. It won the 2017 York Culture Award for ‘Excellence in Writing’.
Flying High! takes you through the seasons, bird by bird, poem by poem, fact by fact. (Oh, and giggle by giggle, of course!) All accompanied by stunning photos from a whole array of talented bird photographers. And a fabulous Foreword by the RSPB Vice-President himself, none other than Professor Sir John Lawton CBE FRS:
‘The poems made me chuckle, even laugh out loud, with pleasure. They capture the essence of each bird quite brilliantly.’
If you like Flying High!, you’ll love its companion volume too, Buzzing! Discover the poetry in garden minibeasts.
