The Running Sky records a lifetime of looking at birds.There have been many books on the bird-watcher's awkward obsession, but there has been nothing until this that so brilliantly restores us to the primacy of looking, the thrill of watching and thinking about the flying wild creatures that share our planet. The Running Sky follows 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 mantelpiece – from northern Shetland to south-west England via downtown Los Angeles and a tobacco farm in southern Zambia. Tim Dee was born in Liverpool in 1961. He has worked as a BBC radio producer for twenty years and divides his life between Bristol and Cambridge.
