“All writers want the reader to see through their eyes, but few succeed in making them hear through their ears as successfully as Nick Penny. Very special.” Jamie Blackett, Country Life Magazine
“Written with a musician’s ear, this is an insightful, lyrical book
about what can be seen and heard when we approach nature with
patience and curiosity. It celebrates people who have used that focus
to help preserve wildlife and pass on their knowledge to future
generations. Above all, Call of the Kingfisher is an invitation to
appreciate the beauty of nature, even in the most ordinary places,
and to use our ears as much as our eyes when we experience the natural world.”
