If you love Nature & Birds - buy this book, 19 Sept. 2012
This book appealed to my nature, Mark's nature too; of a British landscape where natural life is cherished and valued with no compromise. Amongst the good news stories, some battles already won perhaps, are also the ongoing battles. The deep trenches where the stakes are high whilst in a parallel world of sport, greed, finance, fuel, farming and greenhouse gases, nature is often unwelcome, unloved and in some cases,shot from our skies.
Loving our natural world is one thing, wanting to do some tangible and good about it is something much more and Mark's book is likely to rally that passion in you the reader, as it did me. I only wish that the RSPB and other NGOs can step up to fighting for birds and nature and to be balanced, opinionated, outspoken, controversial and up for the scrap that their members and the wildlife we care about, deserve.
My favorite pages?? 196-203 and 285 - A tragedy indeed!
