Records a lifetime of looking at birds. Following the birds' year from one summer to the next, Tim Dee maps his own observations and encounters over four decades, tracking birds well known and bizarre, flying free, in the nest, in his hand as he rings them or dead and stuffed on his mantlepiece.

Begins in the summer with clouds of breeding seabirds in Shetland and ends with crepuscular Nightjars like giant moths in the heart of England, taking us outside again and again to stand, with or without binoculars, under the storm of life over our heads and to marvel once more as all humankind has, at what is flying about us.
