NORFOLK’S BIRDS AND WILDLIFE IN PHOTOS, POETRY AND PROSE
Fabulous photographs of birds are matched by poems, summoning the watery, feather-flocked, reed-fringed landscapes in words.
The Worshipful Companies, by Stuart Medland, is a beautifully-produced collection of words and pictures, telling some of the stories of Norfolk’s birds and other wildlife in prose, poetry and images through the year.
Stuart was a Norfolk primary school teacher and since retiring has created two beautiful books – this latest reflecting his love of the natural world. A talented photographer and writer, each picture is accompanied by evocative, often-quirky text.
Images of lush-plumaged ruffs are accompanied by information about the birds, and the poem:
“The fops have lost the plot – all codpiece, head to toe – forgotten the brief, the Point of it All. Such Come-hither dither; up-to-the-nines in their finery (ever so satiny vanity) – taken a shine to themselves…”
The Worshipful Companies, by Stuart Medland, is published by Brambleby Books for £28
