Five stars for the actual content of the book but it's worth being aware that this is Mabey's Beechcombings with a new sleeve/title - something that (irritatingly) I'd missed when ordering.

Saw this book recommended in Wildlife magazine and remembered reading several of Richard Mabey's books some years back. This is a delightfully put together collection of observations, reflections and reminiscenses about the lovely Chilterns country, focusing especially on the Beech woodlands of all sizes.lots of natural history(unsurprisingly) but also (surprisingly) a fascinating review of the relationships between art and the rural environment, including some less than complimentary words on Capability Brown. The book is sensitively crafted through a deep,well informed understanding of the subject but is also rooted in some tough and very appropriate criticisms of humans efforts to " manage" the countryside.
