...It is superbly produced and illustrated, and is a great showcase for Ken and Vic’s dedicated fieldwork... a real benchmark publication and key reference... The watercolours are a masterstroke and really round the book off beautifully. ... I cannot recommend the book highly enough... Chris Rollie, RSPB Ring Ouzel Plan Manager

...this is a beautifully illustrated book ... and peppered with superb watercolours. ... The well written prose is often full of observation so succinctly and poetically put across...  Any birder will enjoy this book, and anyone with a serious interest in Ring Ouzels will need to refer to it often. FatBirder



An important and timely account which vividly describes the enormous challenges encountered

First-hand account of a pioneering initiative in ecological restoration

Demonstrates the speed at which nature revives when given the opportunity

Shows how rich and beautiful landscapes can be created in the fight against climate change and loss of species

Lavishly illustrated with photographs and original sketches, illustrating the habitats, animals and plants

… Mike Potts writes in an easy-going, accessible style which is a pleasure to read. … I enjoyed this book on several levels not least because at the time of reading, the country was in the grip of Covid-19 lockdown and the next best thing to getting out into the natural world is reading about it.  … I found myself smiling at the constant realisation that I remembered watching the programmes and particular scenes described within the book. One of the more famous moments for me was Sir David Attenborough up a tree with a bird of paradise in the background. … This would be a good book to pass to anyone aspiring to work in the natural world. … If you are interested in knowing more about how natural history films are made, then this would be a great introduction; similarly, if you like reading travel and wildlife books, then this holds plenty of variety… ECOS
