Description
The village of Mark on the Somerset Levels, in England's West Country, is perched on a watery wonderland rich in wildlife—rooks and roe deer, sparrows and snowdrops, buzzards and butterflies, the region's iconic brown hare and the spectacular hummingbird hawk-moth. Naturalist, birdwatcher, broadcaster, and television producer Stephen Moss calls this two-pub town home, and in this lovely book chronicles the landscape as it passes from deep snow to spring blossom, through the heat haze of summer, to the chill winds of autumn. He witnesses the first hazel catkins and the swallows returning from Africa, the sounds of the dawn chorus and the nocturnal mysteries of moths.

"An enchanting month-by-month guide.... As richly evocative of January as of June, Moss captures the flora and the fauna of his Somerset home with a grace and charm to warm the coldest winter night."—Independent (London)
