About the Author

Charlie Elder is a journalist. For the last twenty-five years he has written for papers ranging from The Independent to the Times of Tonga in the South Pacific. He is currently head of production on The Herald in Plymouth. His first book, While Flocks Last, was published in hardback and paperback in 2009.


Elder takes reader on an evocative quest to find some of the amazing wildlife that we are lucky enough to have sharing our island with us. You might read it in an armchair, but it'll make you want to get your books on. -- Tony Juniper, conservationis, campaigner and president of The Wildlife Trusts
A terrific book that's very easy to love. -- Bel Mooney * Daily Mail *
It's a dream to scout out the UK's greatest natural treasures - and find them! -- Chris Packham
This is no mere rarity twitch. Laced with humour, the book celebrates the struggle to save Britain's most threatened species. -- Brett Westwood * BBC Wildlife *
Potentially a bleak tome chronicling the catastrophic decline of our wildlife, this is in fact full of verve, wit and optimism. -- James Fair * BBC Countryfile *
In its modest way, this delightful book is a triumph, too, because it reminds us that, out there, maybe just under that stone, the smallest spider is worthy of life. -- Bel Mooney * Daily Mail *
In Charlie Elder's quest to seek out endangered species now almost invisible nationwide, he brings back travellers' tales of wild places, feral landscapes and creatures of legend. Added to which, he is a cheerful, gregarious companion and guide. -- Iain Finlayson * Saga *
Thoroughly entertaining and informative from page one, Few and Far Between presents a delightful adventure for the reader - an expansive celebration of diversity. -- Simon Parker * Western Morning News, Devon *
In search of Britain's rarest animals...Charlie Elder encounters some of the UK's more remote spots and the good souls dedicated to preserving them. Now there's a job worth a little celebrating. * Wanderlust *
Charlie Elder's adventures are as strange and engaging as the wonderful creatures he sees. As he ticks each challenge off his list, you are as enthralled by his excitement as he is by his triumphs. -- Bel Mooney * Daily Mail *
A countrywide romp * BBC Countryfile *
Jovial as his tone is most of the time, there is no mistaking the seriousness of Elder's intent ... The bleak statistics mount up in a readable, important book. -- Sally Morris and Bel Mooney * Daily Mail *
His enthusiasm and good humour are so infection that you are soon as fascinated as he is by the wart-biter cricket, the spiny seahorse and the gargoyle-featured Bechstein's bat. * Daily Mail *
