The Natural History of an English Village


Join celebrated naturalist Stephen Moss, host award-winning BBC series Springwatch and author of The Swallow, for a year in the idyllic village of Mark on the Somerset Levels – a watery wonderland rich in nature and wildlife, from birds to butterflies to badgers.


As the year unfolds, Moss transports the reader to the entrancing landscape of flora and fauna that accompanies the dawn of each month. Deeply informative and profoundly inspiring, Wild Hares and Hummingbirds is a celebration of the Great British countryside, animals and the natural world.


‘Moss captures the flora and the fauna of his Somerset home with a grace and charm to warm the coldest winter night’ The Independent
