The Skylark is one of Britain's most popular and inspirational birds, and in recent years it has also been one of the most newsworthy. The species' population has plummeted as a consequence of changes in farming practice, and the RSPB has launched a major research and fund-raising campaign to save the 'blithe spirit' from further decline. This book looks at all aspects of the life of the Skylark, from its biology, migratory patterns, breeding behaviour and habitat requirements, to its role in legend and folklore. It also discusses its recent rapid decline which has led to the species being placed on the top-priority 'red list' of Birds of Conservation Concern by the leading governmental and non-governmental conservation organisations in the UK. Three closely related species, Oriental and Japanese Skylarks and the enigmatic Raso Lark are also discussed.

Raised by seafaring pirates, Belladonna Skylark has never known her family. But she’s about to discover her destiny—a binding prophecy that makes her want to run and hide. Pirate Captain Starlene was the one person Belladonna considered a parent—or, at least, a surrogate caregiver—on the Zodiac, which makes the captain’s death all the more painful. The loss of Starlene thrusts Belladonna’s life into the changing winds of leadership as she takes over command of the pirate ship. But her new role as captain is only the first of many changes that turn her world upside-down. Not only is she rushed into learning the ways of a true pirate captain, Belladonna then finds herself tied to a prophecy she must fulfill, and not without numerous tests to her strength and character. As Belladonna and her crew search for the hidden Isla del Dragon, Cornelius Blackfoot lurks in the shadows, and creatures Belladonna has never known begin to surface, ones that both compel and aggravate her journey. Facing a destiny she cannot change, a betrayal by someone dear, and the stirrings of love pulling her away, it’s clear that none of this was made to be easy—especially as Belladonna’s heart grows black and bitter. But her desire to shirk the prophecy’s call could spell catastrophe for more than just herself, making the cost of cowardice too heavy to bear. Skylark, The Dragon Lady is an epic, immersive tale that features fantasy world-building and dynamic characters striving against fate’s machinations.

'A thoughtful and passionate memoir, moving and respectful' Tessa Hadley Huw Lewis was born in Merthyr in 1964. His father an engineer at the Hoover factory, his mother first a housewife then a nurse. He has two older sisters and a younger brother, they were all brought up in the village of Aberfan in south Wales. To Hear the Skylark's Song is a memoir about how Aberfan survived and eventually thrived after the terrible disaster of the 21st of October 1966, when Pantglas school took the full force of thousands of tons of colliery waste and a community lost a generation of children. It is a story about how people held a community together and created a space for each other to thrive. It is also a wonderfully thoughtful and insightful story of what it was like to grow up in a Valley’s community in the 70s: a thriving place of people, shops, clubs, chapel concerts, coal mines, interwoven with gossip and stories and, of course, the annual bus trip to Barry Island. Aberfan found a way to carry on, and Huw vividly brings to life how the sense of community provided strength and comfort in the shadow of a lifetime-long grief. A community that continues to innovate and inspire.
