Rory's tale is a thoroughly educational, occasionally lyrical and highly amusing romp through the hidden byways of birdwatching.

very funny and surprisingly touching
I loved this book and it was made all the better by being read by the inimitable author.
It was very funny (of course), educational and very touching without being sentimental. The twist at the end came as a pleasant and surprisingly unexpected, er, surprise! :-)
Original, witty and very honest, this is a little treat of a book. Oh, and if you weren't that interested in birds (of the feathered variety) beforehand, you might think again having read this...

This is a most interesting and humorous book. Rory reads his account in a very lively and engaging style, so much so that I did nothing else other than draw all day whist listening!
I learnt a great deal and recalled a lot of existing knowledge. The account of visiting a hide for the first time is so, so true.
I would beware of listening to this in public for fear of laughing out loud!
