Let's Talk - - BOOKS -

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.
