Format: Hardcover|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Chris Yates is well known as a writer and broadcaster on angling, but in this book he lifts his gaze from rivers and ponds and turns to the wider theme of nature at night-time.

His beautifully lyrical writing style is maintained with accounts of nocturnal encounters with the natural world. From an account of his first attempts to watch badgers at twilight as a child, to modern day moonlit strolls Chris maintains a high standard of informative, readable writing.

There are reflections on the changing patterns of the natural world - the disappearance of nightingales - and of the unchanging - the elusive nature of fallow deer and the strange stalking behaviour of the possibly more dangerous roe deer.

In this book Chris Yates shows that nature in all its forms has been a lifelong passion of his and that he is by no means a one trick pony, fixated only on fish. A lovely read for summer (and winter) evenings.
