  1. Lovely piece, Kate. I spent a day with OR once, recording in an ancient wood in Suffolk for a series called ‘Trees’. A really interesting country-man: still alert and curious. And wise.


  2. Thank you for this–if the book is as fascinating as your review, it will be money well spent. I don’t live in England, but this is just the sort of natural history I love.
