What is the nation’s favourite nature book?
The shortlist of 10 alleged nature books is open for you to vote for your favourite.
How one can possibly choose between Fingers in the Sparkle Jar by my mate Chris Packham (which is a superb book but not really what I would class a nature book) and The Natural History of Selborne by Gilbert White I really don’t know. Or how to choose between the poems of John Clare (our local poet in these parts) and Wind in the Willows (which again doesn’t strike me as a nature book much more than does Animal Farm). The list seems a strange one to me, but anything which ecourages people to fall in love with nature has to be a good thing.
Poll closes midnight 25 January.
