Using the structure of the well-known carol as a jumpingoff point, Stephen Moss explores the place of twelve fascinating British birds in our history, culture and landscape.

Some of the birds are obvious, such as the swan and the partridge. Other chapters are loose interpretations of a verse: for drummers drumming he delves into the woodpecker’s distinctive drumming tap. With anecdotes and insights, Moss weaves history, culture, bird behaviour and folklore into a compelling narrative for each species.
