It describes in detail many unexpected facets of country lore the unprepossessing nesting habits of the kingfisher, the ease with which those ‘in the know’ can see the supposedly retiring badger, the formation of galls and the real cause of the migration of birds, not, as is generally supposed, due to a drop in the temperature in autumn. Whether you are out for a Sunday stroll with the family or are intent upon a more scientific examination of the countryside, this is the book for you.”
