VISITORS to the Museum of Somerset can discover more about the county’s animals, plants and birds in a playful, new exhibition opening this summer.

Based on the book, Wild Hares and Hummingbirds: The Natural History of an English Village, by the naturalist Stephen Moss, the exhibition runs from July 20 until October 26.

Stephen is one of Britain’s leading natural history writers, broadcasters and wildlife television producers.

His book tells the story of wildlife through the seasons in his home village of Mark, on the edge of the Somerset Levels.

The exhibition brings together his celebrated nature writing with beautiful, original illustration by the graphic artist Stephanie Cole.

Wild Hares and Hummingbirds is part of a summer of exhibitions, events and activities at the Museum of Somerset.
