The UK's favourite nature book

I came across this earlier today – Land Lines are looking to find the UK's favourite nature book. They're all excellent, as you'd expect, but there's three in there that I'd find very very hard to separate – The Peregrine, John Clare's Selected Poems, and of course The Natural History of Selborne. But I'd have to go for JA Baker's masterpiece, in the end.

Dear Matt

Happy New Year! Why not A Sky Full Of Birds? I gave my copy to a very serious twitcher who was absolutely delighted with it. I tend to stick to magpies and robins!

Best wishes from Simon R Gladdish
