Those who are interested... There is and exhibition of some of the nests discussed in this book at the McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park just at the Skye Rd exit from Eastlink Fwy, Victoria, Australia.

We have a habit of having a 'reading aloud' book on the go (A sort of personalised Book at Bedtime!) and this was our most recent one. A very lovely book, vivid, interesting and different and a real pleasure to read aloud.

Nest is a broad ranging and fascinating read. A quick and delightful little morsel, but one with plenty of meat.
My blog review.

Enjoying this very much especially when read alongside my ipad and finding images of birds, nests, people and places Janine Burke talks about
