The Running Sky: A Bird-Watching Life

by Tim Dee
£8.99   paperback  Vintage (2010)

The Running Sky: A Bird-Watching Life by Tim Dee An extraordinary, inspiring book about a lifetime of observing birds, already acclaimed as a classic.
 
The Running Sky records a lifetime of looking at birds. Begining in summer with clouds of breeding seabirds in Shetland and ending with crepuscular nightjars 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 broadbills in Africa.
 
In doing so he brilliantly restores us to the primacy of looking, the thrill of watching, and takes us outside, again and again, to stand with or without binoculars under the storm of life over our heads, and to marvel once more at what is flying about us.
