  • A lyrical and life-affirming book that teaches us as much about birds as it does ourselves - a balm for the soul

    Raynor Winn, author of The Salt Path
  • Totally absorbing and completely engaging on so many levels... Charlie has opened my eyes to the constant joy of the sights and sounds of the birds that surround us. It is a book that really will save lives

    Dr Richard Shepherd, author of Unnatural Causes
  • An enchanting book. I knew at once this was something special

    Lady Glenconner
  • This is no ordinary ornithology, but one that portrays the very essence of each bird through a very human lens and shows us that both solace and joy can be ours by merely observing with an open eye and an open heart

    John Wright, author of The Forager's Calendar
  • A wonderful blend of the lyrical and practical. Charlie shows us that our relationship with birds and the natural world is not only healing, but an important part of our cultural heritage worth protecting

    Adam Henson
  • From dawn choruses to the first chiffchaff calls of spring, Charlie Corbett shows how the changing seasons can bring happy natural rhythms to times of hardship

    National Geographic Traveller
  • This is no misery memoir . . . The story moves apace to its uplifting conclusion, that Nature is the best medicine

    Country Life
  • There is much to be admired

  • An important book, woven with the countryside and catharsis. Also instructive into which birds to look for and how to recognise their calls and song. Written by a true countryman and loving son

    The Field
  • Honest, uplifting and written from the heart, this is a rediscovery of life inspired by a re-discovery of birds
