This book brings together Bill Meek’s wildlife columns from the Cleethorpes Chronicle between April 2014 and the paper’s demise in August 2017, and creates an unrivalled portrait of the natural history of his home town. He describes the wonders and diversity of our natural heritage in easy to read articles that will delight and entertain anyone with an interest in our environment. Almost every aspect of the natural world is observed and recorded month by month through the year. Examples from the local area abound but the line between local and global themes is effortlessly negotiated. While not overly sentimental in style, the work conveys some uncompromising ecological messages with great balance and insight.

'If you live in North East Lincolnshire, this book is a `must-own'. If you do not, read it anyway - it is a fascinating insight into the subject of British natural history, its wonders, culture, practice and problems. Also, by describing the natural history of a single place and time, this work sets down a marker against which the attitudes and actions of the present and future may be judged.' ;Professor Richard Pywell, Head of Biodiversity Research, NERC Centre for Ecology and Hydrology: 'Bill Meek's extensive knowledge of the natural world is widely recognised and here he eloquently captures the changing seasons through his wildlife observations.'; Professor Helen Roy MBE, Principal Ecologist, Biological Records Centre
