Somerset Wildlife Trust presents: Cuckoos and Corncrakes. The evening will be a lively and entertaining fundraising evening that will literally open your ears to the fascinating world of birdsong, brought to you by well-known Tweet of the Day authors Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss.

Between them, Radio 4 presenter Brett Westwood and Springwatch producer and President of Somerset Wildlife Trust Stephen Moss, have spent over a century observing and listening to birds. Their best-selling book Tweet of the Day, based on the cult radio series, is packed with hints and tips on how to tell your Corncrake from your Curlew, and your Blackcap from your Whitethroat.

In this aural extravaganza the duo provide a crash course in birdsong, complete with bizarre sounds, curious anecdotes and fascinating facts suitable for both novices and avid birders of all ages.
