About this book

Geoff Marsh has had a lifetime interest in everything wild. Early wildlife experiences as a child grew until he found himself writing down notes to remind himself of what he had seen. Eventually he was photographing wildlife as well as keeping diaries and has – to date – accumulated a vast record of his activities as an amateur naturalist.

When living in the beautiful village of Lytchett Matravers in Dorset, he was particularly interested in Badgers. Over a two year period he recorded in detail – both through the written word and in photographs – his adventures and encounters, to produce this vivid and delightful memoir. This is a true celebration of a precious corner of England and its many denizens – but especially the ever-fascinating badger.
