A compilation of 60 beautiful screenprints by renowned wildlife artist Carry Akroyd from The Oldie magazine's "Birds of the Month" column. In this sumptuous new art book, renowned wildlife artist Carry Akroyd presents a sequence of screenprints of birds full of variety and color that illustrate British birds in all four seasons of the year. These beautiful prints give full rein to Carry's knowledge of wildflowers, trees, and the modern landscape of Britain, including its wind turbines and passing aeroplanes. And what shines out of Carry's dynamic designs is her deft capturing of each bird's characteristics set beautifully in relation to its habitat. John McEwen's accompanying text is written with elegance and concision, and his columns have been updated where required to keep abreast of the latest research and reports. John's light, eclectic approach connects snippets of ornithology, history, etymology, and cookery, all expressed with wit and knowledge. His writing is spiced with poetry--from Chaucer to the present--as well as facts and stories, while personal and other anecdotes are also included to inform and, above all, entertain the reader.

That some of Clare's poems belong of right to the excellent things of this earth admits of no dispute. A worshipper of Nature, by whom he was surely appointed to be one of her chief historians, he revelled in her manifestations, whether they showed in the higher heaven of blue
