Featuring her endearing illustrations, Hannah Dale’s new book, Flying the Nest, is full of lively interpretations of some of Britain’s best-loved wildlife which jump from the page as you find out about their intriguing characters and their early life.

They are a small variety of cattle but what they lack in size, they more than make up for in their delicious, creamy milk, which contains more protein, calcium and butterfat compared to ‘average’ milk. Jersey cows are also famous for their beautiful faces, and their calves, predictably, are beautiful too, with large brown eyes framed by long lashes. With their inquisitive character and docile nature, this makes them a well-loved and popular
