Have you ever wondered how birds got their names? Why did our ancestors think the lapwing was treacherous and the sparrow lustful, but praise the crow? What bird did Charles II keep in his bedroom, and which feathered friend did Florence Nightingale carry in her pocket? To help celebrate Big Garden BirdWatch, Simon Wills wildlife photographer and author of the book A History of Birds, talks about how people and birds have interacted over the centuries. You may be in for a few surprises.
