This book is from the author of the Samuel Johnson Prize - shortlisted Sunday Times bestseller, A Sting in the Tale.
In 2003, Dave Goulson bought a derelict farm in the heart of rural France, together with 33 acres of surrounding meadow.
Over the course of a decade, he created a place for his beloved bumblebees to thrive along with myriad insects of every kind.
In this book you will learn how a deathwatch beetle finds its mate, about the importance of houseflies, why butterflies have spots on their wings, about dragonfly sex, bed-bugs and wasps.
But it is also a wake-up call, urging us to cherish and protect life on earth in all its forms.
A Buzz in the Meadow is a captivating look at our natural world and a call to arms for nature-lovers everywhere. "Glorious." (The Times). "Captivating." (Independent).
