Berwickshire, v.c. 81

New Publication

Scenes from the Wilds of Berwickshire by Michael Braithwaite is published by the Berwickshire Naturalists’ Club for its members. It gives, as poetry, brief accounts of 28 sites, or groups of sites, of botanical interest which are particularly representative of the botanical diversity of the county of Berwickshire. What is written about each site, or ‘scene’, aims to tell a story, to place the botany in context with its history and geology. Sometimes botanists of earlier generations are an integral part of that story, so they are not forgotten.

Printed copies of the 52 page A5 colour booklet may be available on enquiry through the Berwickshire Naturalists’ Club website.
