What happens when two naturalists discover one of the UK’s wildest orchards? Orchard: A Year in England’s Eden, is a richly evocative and eye-opening book. By recounting the sounds and symbiotic relationships at play in a traditional orchard, Ben and Nick enable us to see the space from another perspective: that of its myriad (non-human) inhabitants. Watch Nick speaking to us about the book and revealing some of its stunning photographs here.
