Mark Cocker talks to Rosie Boycott

Birds and People

Llwyfan Cymru – Wales Stage

There are 10,500 species of birds worldwide and wherever they occur people marvel at their glorious colours and their beautiful songs. Part natural history and part cultural study, Cocker’s study describes and maps the entire spectrum of our engagements with birds, drawing in themes of history, literature, art, cuisine, language, lore, politics and the environment.
