Claxton – Field Notes from a Small Planet – Mark Cocker. Hardback in dustjacket (rrp £14.99). Used – one careful owner – me! (Please note: there is a scuff mark at the base of the spine from ? the removal of a sticker – as shown in last photograph). “In a single twelve-month cycle of daily writings Mark Cocker explores his relationship t the East Anglian landscape, to nature and to all living things around him. The separate entries are characterised by close observation, depth of experience, and a profound awareness of seasonal change, both within each distinct year, and, more alarmingly, over a long period, as a result of the changing climate. The writing is concise, magical, inspiring”. There is a great emphasis on bird life which is very alluring…….it made me long for summer and the sound of a Sky Lark…..
