An event that may be of interest to Blog viewers is ‘Birds in the Landscape’ which is being held at the Seamus Heaney HomePlace in Bellaghy on Sunday 23 October at 4pm.
It features two writers who share Seamus Heaney’s fascination with birds - in his book A Single Swallow, travel writer and novelist Horatio Clare followed the epic flight path of a migrating Swallow across fourteen countries from Cape Town to Wales, while in Birds and People, naturalist (and Birds Britannica co-editor) Mark Cocker drew on 40 years of writing and studying birds to present a wide-ranging celebration of man’s relationship with birds.
