Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
From the internationally acclaimed author of H IS FOR HAWK comes VESPER FLIGHTS, a collection of Helen Macdonald's best loved pieces along with new essays, ranging from accounts of swan upping on the Thames to watching tens of thousands of cranes in Hungary to seeking the last golden orioles in Suffolk's poplar forests. She writes about wild boar, swifts, mushroom hunting, migraines, the strangeness of birds' nests, what we do when we watch wildlife and why. This is a book about observation, fascination, time, memory, love and loss and how we make the world around us, by one of this century's most important and insightful nature writers.
