It just looks like a regular field It has a hedge around it and it is full of grass with some muddy patches near the feeding troughs and the gateAnd you would think that is it But it isn t trust me on this it really isn t This field is teeming with lifeThere are the red kites feasting on wild and domesticated animals the badgers that patrol the field the playful fox cubs the hidden moles visible only from their mounds that try and consume the thousands of earthworms that populate the soil and the beasts that he rears for market But the star of this book is the grasses and plants that populate his field and the insect and bird life it supports Where he is in Hereford it is fortunate that it has not suffered from the effects of the industrial farming process that other parts of the country have and the diversity of the wildlife in his field is greater than it would be elsewhere But his land has not been immune to change there have been some losses such as the corncrake and there are no doubt others Through his lyrical and occasionally poetic prose Lewis Stempel really brings his unspoilt small patch of England into crystal clear focus Written as diary entries through a single year he writes about other events and local characters that orbit and swirl though his life about the history of the lands around as well as the weather a hugely important factor for any farmer He has an eye for detail too this book is full of the minutiae of the things happening in this field from the differences and textures of the grasses to the way that everything is interdependent and reliant on each other all the way up and down the food chain He uses the phrase a lawn is a meadow in captivity which is a perfect way of summing up the difference between a natural environment left to its own devices and finds a balance and that which is controlled and suppressed and is deficient in so much lifeLewis Stempel s passion for this land his land is apparent all the way through the book If you want to understand just how complex a simple meadow actually is this is well worth reading
