In Celebration of Swifts

Mark is a widely acclaimed author of creative non-fiction and naturalist who writes and broadcasts on wildlife in a variety of national media.

He has contributed to the Guardian country diary for 35 years. His 12 other books include biography, history, literary criticism and memoir. A Claxton Diary: Further Field Notes from a Small Planet (2019) won the East Anglian Book of the Year Award and Crow Country was shortlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize, and won the New Angle Prize (2009).
