20 May Mini episode 5 | Stephen Moss interview
This mini episode features an interview with Stephen Moss talking about his new book The Accidental Countryside Hidden Havens for Britain’s Wildlife. Stephen’s book takes a journey of discovery through Britain, in search of the unexpected corners where wildlife survives against all odds. In the interview he talks about his childhood introduction to wildlife on the edges of the urban landscape as well as why these hidden nature havens can seem more inclusive and less excluding than other more traditional nature reserves.
Stephen is a naturalist, author and broadcaster: in a distinguished career at the BBC Natural History Unit his credits included Springwatch, Birds Britannia and The Nature of Britain. His many books include Wild Hares and Hummingbirds: The Natural History of an English Village – a story of a small corner of the West Country and a celebration of the natural world.
