- 5+ in stock
From stately gardens to skyscrapers, The Accidental Countryside unearths a multitude of nests and homes created by enterprising creatures, as testament to the ingenuity and survival instinct of our bugs and beasts.
In The Accidental Countryside, author and naturalist Stephen Moss makes a journey of discovery through Britain, in search of the hidden corners where wildlife survives against the odds.
From Shetland's Iron Age stone structures to London's most modern skyscrapers, and from lowly railway cuttings to ornate stately gardens, Moss reveals the unlikely oases where wildlife thrives in areas originally created for human purposes.
The result is a surprising and uplifting story of how we have influenced the landscape and wildlife of these crowded islands; and how wildlife has taken advantage of us - even when we least expected it.
