What happens when a lifelong love of butterflies becomes a complete obsession? For journalist and naturalist Patrick Barkham it meant spending a year trying to find all 59 species that are known to breed in the British Isles. Out of it came an extraordinary book, The Butterfly Isles. Patrick is the Guardian’s resident Nature writer, and he has travelled the world, observing and celebrating animal life both in the wild and in danger. His other books include Badgerland and Islander, a Journey Round Our Archipelago.
