Regurgitated by a sperm whale, it looked like a very interesting rock to Charlie Naysmith.

I think of other young British boys who loved nature - Bill Wilson, who went with Scott to the South Pole; Gerald Durrell, who wrote so charmingly about his family and other animals; and Robert Byron, who was killed in the Second World War, and left an ode to nature for the son he never had.
