Review

"The Running Sky has the makings of a classic. It's beautifully written, extraordinarily vigilant, and very moving. Most remarkable of all, it manages to give a sense of the bird world as being something which embraces and contains our own - which means that, as we read it, we learn a lot about ourselves as well as the fellow creatures flying through, over and around our own lives" Andrew Motion "Lyrical...sure to become a genuine addition to the literature of birds" Daily Express "What makes his book wonderful is his passion... He captures the thrill and puzzlement of watching birds as I have never previously seen it captured" Sunday Herald "Its author has a forensic eye for detail and a gift for poetry...an intimate and erudite account... he is in the front rank of contributors to the literature of natural history" Daily Telegraph "Serious and playful...creates a powerful and intensely poetic paean to what others have called the wonder of birds" Guardian
