Renowned nature writer Jim Crumley gets up close and personal with some of Britain’s most iconic and loved animals – here, the barn owl. With his inimitable passion and vision, Jim describes some of his most memorable encounters with British wildlife – and reveals the startling ways they continually adapt to the relentless encroachment of humans on their habitats. The Encounters in the Wild series not only offers insights into their extraordinary lives, but also considers the conservation efforts to protect them and how the future looks for these much loved animals.
