After years of observation, a clear picture has emerged of a creature so incredible, that its feats are beyond amazing. A male bar-tailed godwit, that carries the white flag engraved with black letters AJD, completes a 30,000kmroundtrip each year to nest in north-west Alaska. These epic trips are proof of their navigation skills and endurance, earning the species a place in the Guinness World Records, for the longest non-stop journey of any creature on earth. Even more incredible, AJD migrates north each year, often at the same time, on the same day and from the same spot. This book tells, for the first time, the close relationship between this wild bird and the book’s author, a connection that to date has spanned thirteen years.
