Surely the message has got through by now. He is defiant, like a bugle, while a blackbird is seductive, like a flute, and there is one — a real maestro — calling from the apple tree in the other corner of the garden. Chris Yates, one of Britain's most insightful and lyrical writers, raises his gaze from his beloved rivers and ponds and takes us on a mesmerizing tour of the British countryside. I was initially a little irritated with Yates' need to name rather than just be within his environment, but his lyrical prose and evocation of all the things that make me need to be in and around the natural environment had be utterly captivated by the end. He brings you the wildlife sights, the glimpses of starlight through coppices and trees highlighted by the moon.
