Alex Horne is not a birdwatcher. But his dad is, so with the prospect of fatherhood looming on his own horizon, Alex decided there was no better time to really get to know both his father and his father's favourite hobby. So he challenged his dad to a Big Year: from 1 January to 31 December they would each try to spot as many birds as possible; the one who spied the most species would be the victor. Along the way Alex would find out what makes his dad tick, pick up a bit of fatherly wisdom and perhaps even 'get into' birdwatching himself.

Join Alex as he journeys from Barnes to Bahrain in this charming tale of obsession, manliness, fathers and sons, and the highly amusing twists and turns of a year-long bird race.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Horne's observations are at once funny and fascinating * Metro (Review for 'Birdwatching' show) *
Rather like a rare bird - his ostensible subject - [Horne] is a fragile delight, covering any subject with a daft, surreal charm * The Sunday Times (Review for 'Birdwatching' show) *
Remarkably touching, honest, and dryly witty * Time Out *
Enjoyable and entertaining -- Stephen Moss * Guardian *
