Where do birds sleep at night? What is a bufophobe? Which animal can raid a bird's nest without leaving a single trace behind? Why should we love the villainous looking corbeau?
"We human beings don't own the earth. We just share it," writes Richard ffrench. A Naturalist's Year provides a neat, accessible meditation for every week of the year, following the cycle of the seasons (but not too closely).
Richard ffrench won't cage a bird, or slaughter the bees that plague his classroom. His tireless curiosity and his affection for all living things is beautifully complimented by the black-and-white illustrations of his wife Margaret. This is a book where sorrow at loss and extinction is offset by wonder at the mystery of bird migration or the liquid beauty of early-morning birdsong.
