Carry Akroyd Black and White Birds

Calling herself a bird noticer rather than a bird watcher, for Carry Akroyd who illustrated the Tweet of the Day book in 2013, birds are part of the landscape she connects with.

Calling herself a bird noticer rather than a bird watcher, for painter and print maker Carry Akroyd birds are part of the landscape she connects to for her work. Carry illustrated the Tweet of the Day British Birds book in 2013, where she began noticing birds of a single bold colour; black, white, or even black and white.

Carry has chosen 5 episodes from the back catalogue which you can hear Monday to Friday and in the Tweet of the Week Omnibus.
