Wild Hares and Hummingbirds : The Natural History of an English Village Paperback
by Stephen Moss
The village of Mark on the Somerset Levels is a watery wonderland, rich in wildlife: rooks and roe deer; sparrows and snowdrops; buzzards, badgers and butterflies; the iconic brown hare and the spectacular hummingbird hawk-moth.
As the year unfolds, Stephen Moss witnesses the landscape as it passes from deep snow to spring blossom, through the heat haze of summer to the chill winds of autumn; from the first hazel catkins to the swallows returning from Africa; from the sounds of the dawn chorus to the nocturnal mysteries of moths.
Wild Hares and Hummingbirds is both the story of a small corner of the West Country and a celebration of the natural world. Stephen Moss's latest book, The Robin, will be available on 2nd November 2017.
