Wild Shores- The magic of Ireland's coastline

No reviews

Following the Irish coast in a clockwise direction, acclaimed ecologist Richard Nairn travels by boat, on foot and sometimes by air to visit the best remaining wild places, including islands, cliffs, beaches and dunes.

The result is a unique mix of nature, history, science and a reflection on the author’s personal experiences of exploring Ireland’s coast. By viewing the Irish coastline from the sea, Richard gains a unique perspective on the island. And along the way, he recalls a lifetime spent studying nature.

Richard Nairn is an ecologist and a lifetime sailor. During his career he worked as a nature reserve warden and was the first director of BirdWatch Ireland. Wild Shores is the second volume of his memoirs following the acclaimed Wildwoods, which recounted his experience of managing a small woodland.
