Quay Words presents Black Ops and Beaver Bombing with Fiona Mathews and Tim Kendall

About

From seals’ frisky behaviour to red squirrels making their last stand in the battle against the greys, here are the mammals of Britain as you’ve never seen them before.

Wild boar that don’t exist – at least officially. Eccentric hedgehog behaviour. Mines inhabited by greater horseshoe bats (along with cavers, ravers and teenagers smoking unusual substances.) Water voles thriving in Glasgow’s East End – but wait, where’s the water? Fiona Mathews and Tim Kendall, a husband-and-wife team track down Britain’s enigmatic mammals as they live, thrive, or struggle to survive, often forced to fit around human habitation.

About the Authors

Fiona Mathews is professor of environmental biology at the University of Sussex and advises the UK government and its devolved authorities on a variety of conservation issues.

Tim Kendall is professor of English literature at the University of Exeter. He edited Britain’s Mammals 2018. The pair lives in the wilds of East Devon, sharing their house with two teenage daughters, two rabbits, a Labrador and a rehabilitating common pipistrelle bat.
