The Wren: A Biography
Stephen Moss, £12.99, Square Peg Books, 978191093193
Author and naturalist Stephen Moss uncovers the hidden history in fact and lore of Britain’s smallest bird. Weighing the same as two sheets of A4 paper, this fascinating bird is now to many an unknown creature.
With a population in excess of eight million breeding pairs and with one of the strongest voices compared to its actual body size, this is a paradox of seen and unseen, known and unknown.
This is a really interesting book from a great writer and wildlife observer and is a great companion to his earlier volume on the robin.
