37 year old, self-made, single-Mum Mickey returns to her childhood home on the East Coast of England to sort through the possessions of her own deceased mother, reluctant to pick over the years of estrangement and neglect that characterised her own adolescence.

Instead, Mickey stumbles in on an obsessively compiled archive of voice recordings, documenting the movements of local murmurations of Starlings and the plight of the UKs fastest declining birds – kept over twenty-six years, and logged on more than a thousand non-recyclable C90 cassette tapes.

The show is about climate, community, and citizen science in a pre-internet age.
