Join brilliant young naturalist Dara McAnulty - Winner of the 2020 Wainwright Prize for his book Diary of a Young Naturalist - on a audiobook nature walk and experience the joy of connecting with the natural world on your journey featuring a lush multi-layered soundscape of the noises you would hear outside as well as beautiful narration by Dara himself and original music.
This beautiful audiobook is divided into five sections: looking out of the window, venturing out into the garden, walking in the woods, investigating heathland and wandering on the river bank.
Dara pauses to tell you about each habitat and provides fantastic facts about the native birds, animals and plants you will find there - including wrens, blackbirds, butterflies, tadpoles, bluebells, bees, hen harriers, otters, dandelions, oak trees and many more.
Each section contains a discovery section where you will have more details of natural phenomenon such as metamorphoses and migration, learn about categorization in the animal kingdom or become an expert on the collective nouns for birds.
Each section will include unique sound effects that will surround the listener with the noises of nature - from the birdsong you'll hear in your garden to the babbling water on the riverside.
Dara ends the book with advice for young conservationists and how to follow the countryside code.
