Field Notes From a Hidden City: An Urban Nature Diary

by Esther Woolfson - £8.99  Granta Books (2014)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781847082763 | ISBN 10: 1847082769

Against the background of austere and beautiful Aberdeen, Woolfson observes the seasons, the streets and the quiet places of her city over the course of a year. She considers the geographic, atmospheric and environmental elements which bring diverse life forms together in close proximity, and in absorbing prose writes of the animals among us: the birds, the rats and squirrels, the spiders and the insects.
 
Her close examination of the natural world leads her to question our prevailing attitudes to urban and non-urban wildlife, and to look again at the values we place on the lives of individual species.
