Naturally Connected combines Barry’s wonderful nature photographs with his writings in a splendid new book showing much of Norfolk’s spectacular wildlife, and some from further afield. Barry is a lifelong resident of Norfolk where he developed a love of all things wild. In this book he documents his experiences of searching for, photographing and just admiring the beautiful wild creatures he has been lucky enough to dicover in his native county, around the UK, Europe and much further afield. Barry is a keen writer having over 300 published wildlife themed articles to his name. These have appeared in various magazines, blogs and websites, some feature in updated form in this book, although a lot of material has been specially written. He is keenly aware of the growing disconnect between modern day living and the natural world, and hopes this book will help people to become better connected with the splendour of nature.
After all we only need to look.
“Barry’s passion for his subjects is generously shared and superbly accompanied by his own photographs. A book to savour!”
– Martin Kelsey OBE, Birding Extramadura
“Barry’s enthusiasm, combined with his story-telling skills, will enable you to experience the wild world as if you were there alongside him. He delights in both the commonplace and the unusual and rare. Read and, and share Barry’s joy and wonder at some of the worlds most spectacular wildlife sites and sights.”
– David North, Norfolk Wildlife Trust.
