It will be interesting to see what makes the list.

I do get a litle bewildered by the array of nature books in the bookshop nowadays. Any recommendations by folk on here would be most welcome :-)

I hoped someone like Moss might have had a suggestion or two as I'm no expert - though have read a few nature books over the past decade or so. I particularly like the ones that include my other great love which is walking - how better to observe nature than to walk in it. Anything by Robert Macfarlane. Also, just off the top of my head - Patrick Barkham, Roger Deakin, Edward Thomas, Richard Jefferies.
Very much enjoyed Fingers in the Sparkle Jar Chris Packham's own quirky autobiography.

Edit: Mustn't forget The Living Mountain by Nan Shepherd.
