Book Description

This book is set in the time of Covid, Spring and early Summer 2020.

‘In lockdown my focus became the birds within my garden, the trees, the sky and all that settled within and flew overhead. Following the swallows led me out into the field by the Mill, open to the sky, to the gathering storm clouds and settings west.’

In this visual narrative Helen Douglas charts the unfurling of spring, chronicling the birds she saw in the trees, branches and sky within the cycles of both sun and moon. By day and night, skies of blues and cloud settings form backdrops to branches and birds perched in song and patient watchfulness. The blackbird a garden star, flies back and forth, high in the alder tops, singing with increasing flourish morning, moon and night. A curlew passes over, bats fly. A lark hovers to ascend, followed by a cortege of starlings, herons and oyster catchers. All the while, swallows soar out, above and below the moon’s crescent. Within the clarity of lockdown Nature breathes; all comes closer and all connects. With the hovering swoop of raptures and the looming of storm clouds, in increasing heated intensity, is ominous peril conveyed.
