9780140057164: A Nature Diary
From Library Journal:

Richard Adams, known chiefly for his novel Watership Down , here delights us with his observations on daily walks on the Isle of Man, where he lives. On short trips to London, the Lake District, Anglesey and on longer expeditions to Denmark and Australia, he has his eyes open to the birds, flowers, and animals encountered in the course of the day. Everywhere he finds there is always something to enjoy. At home with his Welsh collie, Tetter, and often accompanied by enthusiastic walking companions, he makes everyday observances special with allusions to literature and bits of humor ("Tetter and I sploshed four miles in gum boots. I wore the gum boots"). He is particular about scientific names and not content until he has made a satisfactory identification. Delicate watercolors by John Lawrence greatly enhance the book.

From Publishers Weekly:

For a full year, Richard Adams (Watership Down kept a day-to-day record of what he saw and heard outdoors. With his Welsh collie Tetter and, occasionally, with friends, he tramped the countryside on the Isle of Man in all kinds of weather. During that year he journeyed to other placesLondon, the Lake District, Denmark, Australia, North Wales (where he attended a course on seabirds). Most entries are brief, but they reflect Adams's trained eye and wide interests, which include plants, animals and landscapes. This charming diary will appeal to bird watchers, gardeners, walkers and anyone else who enjoys nature. Lawrence's drawings are exquisite.
