This is the early stage of a hunt for our favourite nature book – we can all nominate books up until the end of 30 November, and then it will be up to a bunch of learned judges (apparently) to decide on the shortlist of 10 for a public vote in January which is when it gets really interesting.
It might be worth nominating a book but it’s rather unclear how the experts will take any notice of your suggestions! I honestly don’t know how I would pick one book, indeed it would be very difficult to pick 10, and it wouldn’t be much easier to pick 100!
I can imagine I’ll be blogging about the shortlist in the new year.
And, this nomination process ends at the same time as you need to submit any images for the Bird Photographer of the Year contest – see here.
And you have to decide who gets your vote in the Birdwatch votes too – see here.
Busy, busy, busy!
