Most of London’s nine million residents are oblivious to the secret world that surrounds them, but nature is seeping into every corner of this capital. Coming in from the countryside, stowing away on ships the pigeons are even using the tube trains, climbing aboard to commute to their feeding sites each morning! In a very British manner, some of its residents have forged extraordinary relationships with these urban immigrants. Extraordinary images combine with the lives of ordinary people to provide a vision of a city like no other - a journey to hidden world, where we become more and more immersed in the animal stories we discover.



"stunning camerawork capturing London as you have never seen it before."
