A Year On the Moor

Year on Moor RGB

"TARQUIN MILLINGTON-DRAKE’S PHOTOGRAPHIC book is a culmination of seven years of travelling north to capture thousands of images on the moor. Millington-Drake recorded grouse and other species throughout the year and has put together an impressive pictorial account of habitats, management, shooting and the people who work on the moor, through the seasons. With few words but some of the best photographs of their type, the book captures the harshness of winter, the unpredictable weather, heather burning, the new life of spring and what that means for the many species on the moor, and the importance of ‘the Glorious Twefth’."
