Miriam Darlington - Owl Sense
Owl Sense is a captivating study of one of our most charismatic and elusive birds.
Miriam Darlington’s journey begins with wild encounters in the British Isles,
on the walks she takes with her teenage son Benji.
From here, she seeks to identify every European species of owl, on a journey that will take her from southern Spain through France, Serbia and Finland, and to the frosted borders of the Arctic.
In her watching and deep listening to owls in the natural world, Darlington cleaves myth from reality and brings the strangeness and magnificence of these creatures to life.
Owl Sense was a BBC Radio 4 Book of the Week in February 2018.
‘A beautiful book; wise and sharp-eared as its subject.’ Robert MacFarlane.
Miriam Darlington has a degree in Modern Languages, a PhD in Nature Writing, a certificate in Field Ecology and is a Nature Notebook columnist at The Times.
Her first book, Otter Country, was published in 2012.
She currently teaches Creative Writing at Plymouth University and spends the rest of her time writing and researching about wildlife and the people in its grasp.
