The Boom of the Bitterbump
Available in Stock
Blackbirds 'whistling up the rain', a recipe for baked hedgehog, the old wilderness fens of Cheshire – long since reclaimed – where the bitterbump boomed... Roger Stephens presents a wonderfully rich collection of old lore about Cheshire's wildlife and flora, gathered from local farmers, labourers, gamekeepers and poachers, as well as the writings of folklorists ancient and modern. And the bitterbump? It's a Bittern.
