Description

‘A superb naturalist and writer.’
CHRIS PACKHAM

‘From Stone Age remains to modern day skyscrapers, Stephen Moss takes us on an exhilarating journey through place and time, providing a fascinating insight into nature’s relationship with environments created by man.’
DR MYA-ROSE CRAIG (BIRDGIRL)

Welcome to The Accidental Countryside.

This is the fascinating and remarkably empowering story of our influence upon the landscape and wildlife of these crowded islands, and of how wildlife has co-opted its most unlikely corners – even when we least expected it.

From the seabirds sheltering in the prehistoric stone structures of Shetland to the peat diggings in Somerset teeming with life, and from the rare insects hidden in Belfast’s docklands to the falcons that make London’s Shard their home, Stephen Moss reveals the unexpected oases which foster the crucial links in the chain that bind the natural world together.
