Park Life

A Year in the Wildlife of an Urban Park

Park Life follows a year in the life of an urban park in the county town of Warwick in central England. There are tips on identification of species, the legends and folklore associated with many of them, some little known scientific facts, and some surprising rarities. Park Life reflects on the importance of access to green space for the eighty percent of us who live in towns and cities – brought into sharp focus by the pandemic lockdown. Regular contact with the natural world has never been more important for our physical and mental wellbeing.

(Rick Thompson / Grosvenor House, 2020)
