Illustrated throughout with black and white drawings, prints and thumbnail sketches, this celebration of wildlife along the Thames in verse and prose is a loving and thought-provoking compilation of poems and prose-poems composed over a period of years by two inveterate river trudgers and wildlife-sketchers. Short poems of intense observation, are mixed with urban myths, strange facts, and plausible fictions. The authors have walked the length of the Thames and back, recording every little twitch of bird and insect, and what they didn’t see they invented.
