The Barley Bird; Notes on the Suffolk Nightingale
£20.00 Add to basket


This is an intensely personal exploration of the Nightingale's links with the Suffolk landscape and with its local culture. Richard Mabey also traces the bird's course through myth, lore, tradition and literature. He plumbs his subject for its literary and historical references, and he opens the reader's ears to the bird itself and its extraordinary song, a hymn to survival.
