Dee, Tim

Tim Dee

Elected: 2018

Year of birth: 1961

Tim Dee is a writer and radio producer. His first book, The Running Sky, was a memoir of his bird-watching life. Four Fields (2013) explored the commonest scratching at the Earth’s surface that our species has made: one field in the Cambridgeshire fens, the others on an old tobacco farm in Zambia, at the Custer battlefield in Montana, and in the Exclusion Zone in the shadow of the exploded nuclear power plant at Chernobyl. In the Autumn he will publish Landfill, the story of men who watch gulls on rubbish dumps and in other desolate spots.
