An affectionate book!
on 5 October 2016
This is one of those special books, you read with the heart. The language is very down to earth, yet it is full of warmth and those silent little wonders, you can observe, when you take the time to see or live them; The book is beautifully written, partly a memoir and partly a big love for nature. It is life affirming and full of care.
One of the reason of buying it, was our own beautiful experiences with birds of all kinds over the last years. The most beautiful one was with a pheasant, who visited us almost daily, and especially regularly during the winter months. He got grains, and when we were not fast enough, he came to give a little knock on the patio door to call us outside. He sat in the garden, on the roof at times, on the window sill or on the fence. Once we had forgotten the grain tin in the garden, he was able to open it, even the mechanism to close it seems, in my view, very difficult for him to open.
With or without own experiences of this kind, this book is a lovely read. Very recommended.
