Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This fascinating book includes W. H. Hudson's original 1893 account of the birds found in a village in southeast England and compares the species and populations that occurred then with those that are present today. The striking differences are explored in relation to changes in the countryside during the intervening century and through anecdotes gathered from local residents. * Incorporating the original text of W. H. Hudson (cofounder of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds) from ca. 1893 * Species accounts of birds in typical rural villages at that time * Behavior of countryside birds and our relationship with them * A reminder of a slower pace of life * A reflection on the many changes in village life and its effects on birdlife down the years to the present time * Containing anecdotal considerations of birds and our current generation's knowledge of them * Illustrated in sepia and full-color images
