About this book

Read the full review in British Wildlife

The uplands of Britain are unique landscapes created by grazing animals, primarily livestock. The soils and blanket bogs of the uplands are also the largest stores of carbon in the UK, and 70% of the country’s drinking water comes from the uplands. It’s a significant region, not least to the multitudes of bird species that hunt, forage and nest there.

As with his previous books Farming and Birds and Bird Migration, Ian Newton demonstrates his mastery of the subject matter at hand, in this beautifully illustrated, authoritative addition to the New Naturalist series.

Media reviews

"[...] As we would expect from the author, the book is objective. It explores the scientific evidence and literature, and occasionally the ‘grey literature’, associated with topics. As it forms part of the New Naturalist series it is written for a wide, more general audience who are not necessarily academics. This means it provides a welcome, readable, impartial and informative book that should be of interest to anyone with an interest in upland ecology and land use, and not just upland birds."
– Graeme Buchanan, Ibis 163(2), April 2021

"[...] This is an excellent book, written in an engaging style that allows you to delve in and out with ease. It is well illustrated throughout and, despite its size, is a delight to read."
– Keith Betton, British Wildlife volume 32(2), November 2020
