Feathers and Eggshells: The Bird Journal of a Young London Girl
The author of this book is a teenager with a passion for wild birds. Here Natalie Lawrence takes us on an extended tour of her favourite bird watching area - Hampstead Heath in London - a suburban haven for wildlife, comprising different habitats for birds. From the mating dance of the Great Crested Grebe, to the delicacy of the Treecreeper's beak, she reveals the beauty and diversity of the local bird life, using drawings and photographs, prose and poetry.
This book will appeal to all who can relate to a childhood passion and especially those who love birds in a natural setting.
'... This book sees Natalie's skills blossoming. It reveals a strong artistic streak that enables her to depict in illustrations, photographs and poetry what she sees with imagination and clarity. Most of all, it is a love affair with the place and the wildlife that have enchanted her since she was a child. I hope you too will be inspired by the heartfelt passion of Feathers and Eggshells.' Derek Niemann, RSPB youth editor
