Waterstones Says

Rutt’s very personal odyssey around the United Kingdom in pursuit of the many and varied breeds of goose forms the backbone of this wistful, lovingly essayed volume. Illuminating history and descriptive nature writing make Wintering an understated gem for the festive season.  

The new season begins. The geese return.

The arrival of huge flocks of geese in the UK is one of the most evocative and powerful harbingers of winter; a vast natural phenomenon to capture the imagination. So Stephen Rutt found when he moved to Dumfries in the autumn of 2018, coinciding with the migration of thousands of pink-footed geese who spend their winter in the Firth.Thus begins an extraordinary odyssey.

From his new surroundings in the north to the wide open spaces of his childhood home in the south, Stephen traces the lives and habits of the most common species of goose in the UK and explores the place they have in our culture, our history and, occasionally, on our festive table.

Wintering takes you on a vivid tour of the inbetween landscapes the geese inhabit, celebrating the short days, varied weathers and long nights of the season during which we share our home with these large, startling, garrulous and cooperative birds.
