Everyone has dreamt of doing it but very few have actually done it - packed up their lives to follow their dream, leaving behind the safe and secure for the freedom and excitement of doing exactly what they’ve always wanted to do. This is the tale of two people who did just that.
As keen birdwatchers with a love of travel, it seemed obvious to Ruth Miller and Alan Davies to combine these two passions in an odyssey of discovery - a world record- breaking attempt to see more bird species in a single year than ever achieved before.
With an itinerary covering more than twenty countries and a target bird list of over 4,000 species, it was never going to be easy. Could they do it? This book follows the ups and downs of their birding year in this fast-paced adventure of birds, people and places. Anyone with an interest in travel, wildlife or human relationships will be gripped by this epic tale. Paperback; 300 pages.
