Robert Burton's Nature Notes
By Robert Burton
Nature Notes were practically a national institution. Written by Robert Burton, and his father before him; they were published in the Daily Telegraph for decades. Robert still continues to produce Nature Notes and now he publishes them himself on the web.
There's no substitute for experience when it comes to interpreting the things that can be seen around us in nature. The clarity of Robert Burton's insight comes from a lifelong passion for, and experience of, the natural world. He has been to extraordinary places and seen some of the natural marvels of the world, but he has not lost the capacity to be delighted by the 'ordinary'. Each Nature Note is little gem illustrating how the everyday sights and sounds of the countryside or garden can be, when properly observed and considered, a source of pure delight and wonderment.
