From piddocks and lynchets to Witch's Broom, this book was voted the Best Nature Book of 2021 by Countryfile. Beautifully illustrated, practical and entertaining, one of Britain's best-known naturalists John Wright introduces us to the natural and unnatural mysteries of the countryside. He gives us the tools to identify Robin's Pincushion, Dew ponds and Hollow Ways, to find a flower with black pollen rather than yellow, stranded ponds on grassy hilltops or even pottering on our own back garden encountering things that make us stop and wonder. John reveals the histories and practicalities of those that are man-made and the astounding and intricate lives of the natural mysteries as he illuminates the oddities that pepper our landscape. Funny whimsical observations and dozens of colour photographs throughout, the book is organised by the field, the wood and the seashore. 240 beautiful pages.
