Since 1972 Mark Cocker has been a member of a community of obsessional people, almost all male, who sacrifice most of their spare time, a good deal of money, sometimes their chances of a partner or family, even occasionally their lives, to watch birds. Birders is the story of this community, of its characters, its rules, its equipment and its adventures - many of which are hilariously funny, Birders is also a work of love - the story of what birds can do to the human heart.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"At last! An up to date examination of what makes birders tick. And about time too! Wonderfully written" * Bill Oddie *
"A natural history version of Fever Pitch... Reading it may even make you want to try out this strangely addictive past time for yourself" * Guardian *
"Intensely readable, very funny and highly enlightening" * New Scientist *
"With a mixture of well-chosen anecdotes and self-deprecating humour, Cocker succeeds in making event he most hardened cynic appreciate his passion. Birders is a stylish work in a long tradition of fine writing on the subject" * Guardian *
"The best account yet of the "tribe" and its wonderful, unworldly passions" * The Times *
