"Four Acres is a wonderful testament of what can be achieved for local wildlife on our own doorstep. lf, like Glyn Frewer, we provide a variety of habitats with shelter, nesting sites, food and water, local wildlife will seek us out. Each of our own gardens, however large or small, is a nature reserve waiting to happen. The enthusiasm shown by Glyn Frewer’s meticulous observations is exactly what our Wildlife Trust aims to share with others to encourage them to take action for local wildlife"
- Berkshire, Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust

“ln this detailed and intimate record, Glyn Frewer catalogues the coming and goings of wildlife within his Cotswold garden. The reader has a palpable sense of the seasons. through a natural historian’s eye, an author who genuinely loves the plot and its inhabitants. Crucially, it presents a fine example ofwhat can be achieved in a relatively small area given the planning and management and serves as a positive encouragement to us all”
- Oxford Ornithological Society

Four Acres is a fine example of how much enjoyment and fascination can be provided through the careful observation of one’s local patch. It provides an evocative snapshot of the state of the English countryside at the turn of the century”
