For the last 30 years, Sir John Lister-Kaye has taken the same circular walk from his home deep in the Scottish Highlands and out to the local loch. Every day brings a new observation, or an unexpected encounter – a fragile spider’s web or a play-fight between two dog-otters. And when he arrives home, he records his thoughts in a journal. Regarded by The Scotsman newspaper as “One of the finest nature writers in the English language” John Lister-Kaye’s new book ‘At the Water’s Edge’ is a lyrical hymn to the wildlife of Britain and a powerful warning to respect and protect it.

Sir John Lister-Kaye OBE is one of the UK’s best-known naturalists and conservationists. He has lectured on wildlife and the environment on three continents and served prominently in the RSPB, the Nature Conservancy Council, Scottish Natural Heritage and the Scottish Wildlife Trust. His Aigas Field Centre in Inverness-Shire has won international recognition for its environmental education programmes and continues to welcome study groups from all over the world.
