A gentle walk through the trees with bird expert and nature enthusiast Declan Murphy - author of Life in the Trees: The Great Spotted Woodpecker. Part memoir, this book is a personal account of a family of woodpeckers raising their young, touching on themes of hope, new life, love and death. Declan is an avid birdwatcher who found his place in the world through a deep connection to nature. He is passionate about sharing his experience and expert knowledge with both children and adults - hoping to inspire people to recognise all that nature has to offer.

Experienced nature guide Adrian Nolan will lead the trail down to the banks of the Glencree River as Declan talks about birdsong, wildlife and habitats, whilst also offering some personal insights into his own experiences in nature.

‘As engaging an expression of a true naturalist’s passion as Ireland has produced … So immediate and concerned is [the author’s] account that one comes to live it with him, if spared the scourge of midges that penetrate his dark and humid hide.’ —The Irish Times
