Between the winter and the summer solstice in Europe, spring moves north at about the speed of swallow flight - close to human walking pace. In light of these happy coincidences, Greenery: Journeys in Springtime recounts how one man tries to travel with the season and its migratory birds, making remarkable journeys to keep in step with the very best days of the year. 

Join acclaimed nature writer Tim Dee as he discusses his new book in conversation with journalist and writer Robert Hanks.
