The original radio programmes are great and (as at the time of this review) can all still be downloaded through iTunes free of charge. The physical book "Tweet of the Day" is fine as an add-on, and the six 5-star reviews which appear here on Audible all (rather bizarrely) relate to that, NOT to the audiobook, which has not previously been reviewed. The audiobook is a bit of a disappointment. Unsurprisingly, the authors don't deliver their own writing as well as their celebrity guests did in the original programmes; and more importantly, the amount of birdsong played in the audiobook is very restricted, generally just a couple of seconds at the start of each bird's section, rather than played as a background throughout. The whole feel of being out in the field - key to the original programmes' appeal - is lost. Altogether, it's a bit of a mystery to me why the audiobook has been produced at all.
