review Wild Hares and Hummingbirds The Natural History of an English Village

Comes across as being very idyllic and supplies Moss with a number of places to explore bridges churchyards meadows and woods The range of animals is sees is incredible makes what you see in Basingstoke very dull and A Foxs Love (American Kitsune his knowledge of birds is fantastic I m so jealous thate is able to name a bird so uicklyThe one thing I m going to try and remember from this book is Teasels we get them in Basingstoke and I ve always wondered what they are whether they were related to thistles or not now I know all about them and can tell my kids next time we spot oneGreat book full of knowledge and fun to readBlog review is The Provocateur here England doesn tave any Trading Christmas hummingbirds but it doesave ummingbird awkmoths which explains the title In the tradition of Gilbert White Moss writes a month by month tribute to what Pride he regularly sees onis Men home turf of Mark Somerset As I did with Mark Cocker s Claxton I picked up the book partway at the month in which I started reading it and when I reached the end returned to the beginning and read up to my starting point Controversial I know but that July to June timeline worked fine it gave me familiar glimpses of what s going on with English nature now followed by an accelerated preview of what Iave to look forward to in the coming monthsMoss is primarily a birder so Isotopic Carbon he focuses on bird life but also notes what sappening with weather trees fungi and so on In the central and probably best chapter on June The Robotics Primer (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents) (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents) (Intelligent Robotics Autonomous Agents Series) he maximizes wildlife watching opportunities going eel fishing running a moth trap listening for bats and looking out for unfamiliar plants My minor annoyances with the book were the too freuent references to the parish which makes the book s concerns seem parochial rather than microcosmic and the common use of semicolons where commas and dashes would be preferable But if you re fond of modern nature writing andave some familiarity with or at least interest in the English countryside I Step Out of Your Story highly recommend this as a peaceful observant read Plus Harry Brockway s black and white engravingseading each chapter are exuisiteFavorite lines Being in one place is also the best way to understand the passing of the seasons not the great shifts between winter and spring summer and autumn which we all notice but the tiny subtle changes that occur almost imperceptibly from week to week and day to day throughout the year For me one of the greatest pleasures of living in the English countryside is the way we ourselves become part of the natural cycle of the seasons Originally published on my blog Bookish Beck.

It was a bit rambling but on the whole I liked the gentleness of it I expected to like this book but I found the writing style skittish and jumpy and just couldn t get into it enough to find it a pleasurable read Wonderfully written book mainly about one small English village but relatable through many small villagesFull of fascinating descriptions and prose as it gently wanders through each month of the yearOnly negative point this type of writing as been done so many times before This is the diary of one man s year in the countryside of southwest England Having moved from the city five years prior Odd Man In he is both able to be a part of the rural natural world s daily motions and see the beauty in every bit It is normal for a person to become so acclimated to a place that they accept everything as normal and thereby lose their sense of wonder when it comes to the nature that surrounds them But in Moss case thee acclimates the complexities of the world are revealed to Palace Intrigue (A Medieval Tale him and thus theis amazement grows A reverent joy is on each page of this book joy taken in the ordinary Parking Lot Rules 75 Other Ideas for Raising Amazing Children happenings ofis countryside joy in Carlyle Marney how it all comes together in one wheel of life itself Month by monthe leads us through different places and to different seasonal faunal activities and by the end we feel sad to say goodbye but know that the little world of Mark England will be just as beautiful in our absence as when we explored it through these pages For now at least for it is a surety that one day everything will change in response to climate shifts as Moss briefly touches upon near the end Some animals will migrate many will eventually fade and what we know as the English countryside will be irrevocably changed foreverIn that sense this book will become a remembrance of a special simple place in an era when it was still what we thought it to be But though it may become a eulogy one day it will always be at it is today when the natural world of Mark is still what exists within these pages a wondering tender and utterly delighted celebrationA note the only detraction I found in the book was the proliferation of commas His writing Shameful has a wonderful natural flow to it butis use of unnecessary commas interrupts it to no end While this issue exists in the whole of the book the material itself along with the other facets of is writing abilities still warranted five stars I couldn t get into this book I believe this was because it felt like Moss as a tick list approach to natural Sacred Landscapes history He likes to put names to species add them tois lis.
