9780099552468: Wild Hares and Hummingbirds: The Natural History of an English Village

The village of Mark on the Somerset Levels is a watery wonderland, rich in wildlife: rooks and roe deer; sparrows and snowdrops; buzzards, badgers and butterflies; the iconic brown hare and the spectacular hummingbird hawk-moth.

As the year unfolds, Stephen Moss witnesses the landscape as it passes from deep snow to spring blossom, through the heat haze of summer to the chill winds of autumn; from the first hazel catkins to the swallows returning from Africa; from the sounds of the dawn chorus to the nocturnal mysteries of moths.

Wild Hares and Hummingbirds is both the story of a small corner of the West Country and a celebration of the natural world.

Review:

"Delightful, soothing and informative " (Daily Mail)

"An enchanting book, Wild Hares and Hummingbirds is a combination of celebration for what is and regret for what is passing. It is elegiac" (Daily Express)

"An enchanting month-by-month guide to "the natural history of an English village". As richly evocative of January as of June, Moss captures the flora and the fauna of his Somerset home with a grace and charm to warm the coldest winter night" (Independent)

"[A] charmingly produced book...readers are in the hands of an expert" (Steven Barfiel The Lady)

"This engaging account...should spark interest in country-dwellers and provide a transporting read for townies. In his placid style, Moss is profoundly informative" (Christopher Hirst Independent)

Book Description:

A Natural History of Selbourne for a new generation - nature-writing at its finest, expressed through the natural history of one very special place.
