The Refugees of Daffodil Cottage
Max Rudd




Led by Justin the Blackbird, the birds undertake an arduous journey to find a new home at Tumble Bank Mill; an old watermill converted into a museum. Here they meet White Wings the Barn Owl – leader of a growing band of refugees from the encroachment of civilisation.

A severe winter brings new hardships for Justin and his friends; Rusty Robin, Albert and Elizabeth Sparrow, Peter and Molly Blue Tit and Ronnie and Queenie Starling. Ever mounting human activity, competition from a neighbouring flock of tree sparrows and the fear of feral cats near the mill only add to the pressures the friends must face if they are to survive.

Lovely book, showing the impact human activity has on the life of birds, but also a book about friendship.
