About this book

Twitching Through the Swamp is the first collection of short musings by 'Twitcher', accompanied by cartoons drawn by David Carstairs, originally published in bi-monthly editions of British Wildlife. Also included are previously unpublished cartoons and other notes on the natural world, from the (now defunct) Nature Conservancy Council's staff magazine Natural Selection.

"Peter Marren's swamp is the corporate idiocies and joyless Newspeak of the conservation establishment. His twitching is more of an impish war dance – elegant, cheeky, wryly wise and wonderfully funny"
– Richard Mabey
