Martin Hayward Smith Talks About His New Book ‘My Year With Hares’

MYWTH_MHS_coverInternationally renowned wildlife cameraman and director Martin Hayward Smith will give a talk about his critically acclaimed book ‘My Year With Hares’ at the Sculthorpe Moor Nature Reserve.

Local lad Martin was commissioned to make a film about hares; during the making of this program he gained footage of behaviour never before seen. With unlimited access from a number of private locations by North Norfolk landowners, Martin worked on prime UK hare habitat, from Holkham, The Barshams to Burnham Market – an area that covers thousands of acres.

The book takes the form of diary entries, which are split into seasonal chapters. As well as hares, Martin documents through text and photographs other wildlife encountered while out in the field – including many farmland birds, foxes, deer etc.

His book has been reviewed favourably in a host of publications from Norfolk Magazine to the ‘best nature books annual roundup’ in major national newspapers such as The Guardian, The Daily Telegraph and Daily Express.
