Get up close to Cornwall’s wildlife with this magical guide to the year

Hannah Stitfall is a TV presenter and zoologist, who regularly gets up in the early hours of the morning to try and catch sight of some of Cornwall’s best hidden wildlife. She will spend hours on end waiting for a creature to appear among a hedgerow, scurrying across Cornwall’s open fields or taking flight across its towering cliffs and sandy beaches. In these brief, magical moments, Hannah is able to see and capture animal behaviour that the general public rarely get to witness.

In this book, Hannah shares her incredible stories, beautiful photographs and often funny meetings with Cornwall’s wildlife through the course of a year. From brown hares boxing in the grass in the spring, watching an otter cub hunt in the wetlands in winter, to witnessing the unique bioluminescence of a glow-worm in the summer, Wild Treasures is a remarkable diary, informative guide and joyous celebration of our nation’s wonderful creatures.

An anarchically charming calendar of Cornwall’s wildlife. This is Stitfall in spadefuls; she celebrates the ragged corner of the UK and all its natural treasures. So refreshing!

Wild adventures found on every page! Hannah perfectly captures the journey and feelingS of watching wildlife – the anticipation, the caution, the excitement and, eventually, the utopia. Her words both glue you to the story but also encourage you to get your boots on and find these precious spectacles for yourself. A joyful, heartwarming and important read for nature lovers!
