About this book

February 2nd 1831: ’A tremendous hurricane, with an overwhelming fall of snow and with the wind south-west. An extraordinary influx of Fieldfares, not less than 20,000 dispersed round Keyhaven and Westover.'
– From the Diary of Colonel Peter Hawker 1893

Discover who Colonel Hawker was in Ed Wiseman's fascinating account of the characters who frequented or worked within the marshes of Lymington and Keyhaven in the New Forest district of Hampshire, south-east England; without them the place would have been much poorer. Learn about the events of history that shaped what was once a landscape of industrial salt-production into one of Britain's most important nature reserves.

One Man's Marshes also includes a comprehensive reference of the birds recorded here, compiled by Ed Wiseman, from books, notebooks and journals dating from the early nineteenth century to the present.

A sense of place and atmosphere is created throughout with many paintings by Dan and Rosemary Powell. Along with a unique collection of beautiful photographs, taken by those with a great personal attachment to the marshes.
