About this book

On the southern fringe of Cambridge beside the Biomedical Campus a group of felds have become a haven for wildlife of the arable countryside, and above all for six threatened species of iconic farmland birds.

John Meed has studied these felds for over ten years, following the changing seasons and braving the elements in a quest to know better the remarkable birds and animals that live there, and to understand what makes the felds so special. In A haven for farmland birds he describes the remarkable behaviour, subtle communication and complex social lives of these fascinating creatures, how commercial farming can still be compatible with biodiversity, and how these green belt felds are under threat – all in his lucid and ‘transportive’ writing style.
