Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Waiting For Birds is a collection that traverses nearly half a century and three countries. With a compassionate and humorous eye, Rob King takes himself and the reader from a childhood in Yorkshire - listening to the radiogram, making jam, or watching a neighbour fishing for hens, through the challenges of working with the homeless in Scotland, and worm-watching with one of his sons, to the new life he found in New Zealand, observing people at Ngaio train station, cycling the streets and just ...waiting for birds.
