    First heard every weekday morning at 5.58am on BBC Radio 4, Tweet of the Day captured the imagination of early risers and bird lovers, proving so popular that it was named Radio Programme of the Year 2014. Each episode begins with a bird call or song, followed by fascinating ornithological detail about its owner. This collection contains every edition from the first series, British Birds. The songs of over 160 birds can be heard over the course of a year, from the cuckoo's call in spring to the summer seaside sound of the herring gull, the autumn song of the robin and the song thrush's voice of hope in the depths of winter.

    For 20 years John Aitchison has been travelling the world to film wildlife for the BBC and other broadcasters, taking him to faraway places on every continent.
