Thoroughly enjoyable and inspiring read. I immediately bonded with the book when it said we are all born naturalists...my youth was spent in Billingshurst near Christs Hospital. I knew Norman and Marlpost Wood was a dawn chorus pilgrimage. Happy days watching the disappeared Nightingales and Turtle Doves.
The book inspired me to revisit Bentley Wood and see my first Emperors and White letter Hairstreaks.
A lovely read, absolutely glued to the book and its insight into the hidden world of Butterflies and passion for Natural history. Thank you Mr Oates.
