19th February 2018 – nature reading

I have just finished reading Horatio Clare’s charming little book Orison for a Curlew about the (possibly) extinct slender-billed curlew. It’s a mix of travel and nature writing


My photo and plate are taken from the entry about the slender-billed curlew in Wikipedia

I so enjoyed reading this book and thought it would be worthwhile to record the nature books that I have read and enjoyed in the last few months:

Horatia Clare (2015) Orison for a Curlew (Little Toller)

Brett Westwood and Stephen Moss (2017) Wonderland A Year of Britain’s Wildlife, Day by Day (John Murray)

Rosamond Richardson (2017) Waiting for the Albino Dunno How Birds Can Change Your Life (Weidenfield & Nicholson)
Simon Barnes (2017) The Meaning of Birds (Kindle Edition

Lars Gejl (2016) Waders of Europe A Photographic Guide (Bloomsbury)

I have also created a bibliography page which I will add to as time allows.
