It’s often said that the British are a nation of nature lovers, but what does that really mean? Warm, humorous and ever-the-enthusiast, Lev Parikian is on a journey – from pavement to garden, from wildlife reserve to far-flung island – to discover the quirks, habits and foibles of how we experience nature.
Lev Parikian is a writer, birdwatcher and conductor. His book Why Do Birds Suddenly Disappear? was published in 2018. He lives in South London with his family, who are getting used to his increasing enthusiasm for nature. As a birdwatcher, his most prized sightings are a golden oriole in the Alpujarras and a black redstart at Dungeness Power Station.
