A Year in Minsmere Bird Reserve
Publication Date: August 17, 1992
This is a book about a place – Minsmere – and about a belief – conservation.
This is an account of a year at Minsmere, Britain’s greatest ornithological nature reserve, situated in the shadow of Sizewell on the east coast of Suffolk. This book examines the birds, the people and the habitat of Minsmere, providing a case study for environmental and conservation dilemmas that have world-wide implications.
This is a book about Minsmere: it is also a book about everywhere. It looks at wild places and wild creatures, and why we need them more and more with every passing year. A year in Minsmere shines like a beacon of hope: this book is a celebration of that hope.
