MRS MOREAU'S WARBLER

Synopsis

Swallow and starling, puffin and peregrine, blue tit and blackcap. The words we use to name birds are some of the most lyrical and evocative in the English language. Through fascinating encounters with birds, and the rich cast of characters who came up with their names, Stephen Moss shows how these names reveal as much about ourselves and our relationship with the natural world as about the creatures they describe.
