Ho­ra­tio Clare’s lat­est book is part-trav­el­ogue, part-el­egy for a species that may now be ex­tinct. He fol­lows the bird’s mi­gra­tory path through Europe, con­sid­er­ing the threats faced by the nat­u­ral world along the way, threats that have con­trib­uted to the bird’s dis­ap­pear­ance. It once bred in Siberia and win­tered in the Mediter­ranean basin, pass­ing through the wetlands and es­tu­ar­ies of Italy, Greece, the Balkans and Cen­tral Asia. To­day, it only ex­ists as a ru­mour. lit­tle­toller.co.uk
