Description
Information
A Naturalist's Australia.

This is a collection of Graham Pizzey's newspaper articles that have been published over five decades. The topics range from weather to rivers to birds to quokkas . . . anecdote-based, sometimes quirky and philosophical reflections on nature.

Pizzey recounts a camping trip and talks about how many species of birds he counted; a male spider gobbled up by a female straight after mating; a snake swallowing a small animal; he lies in a muddy hollow for several hours, camera poised, waiting for a nightjar to return to its chick. And true to form, Pizzey keeps reminding us of the need for biodiversity, the urgency of conserving natural habitat, and the joys - and spiritual aspects - of nature.
