The 50 poems in this striking little gift book celebrate birds of every feather - from the cuckoo in the woods and kingfishers by the river, to eagles soaring and wild geese returning south for the winter.

With five sections to choose from - Outside Your Window, By the Water, In Among the Trees, On the Wing and Out in the Fields.
