This is the story of a birding odyssey, following the authors' quest to smash the world record for the number of species seen in one calender year.
Ruth Miller and Alan Davies are self-confessed birding obsessives from North Wales. Alan is currently warden of the RSPB reserve at Conwy. His wife Ruth is a marketing consultant, and former Head of Trading for the RSPB. They dedicated one year of their lives to beating the birder's world record and smashing the seemingly impossible target of 4,000 species in a single calender year.
