The column has consistently attracted some of Britains best writers on natural history and the countryside: Jim Perrin the mountaineering writer, whose biography of Don Whillans won the Boardman-Tasker Award, writes the dispatches from Snowdonia- Mark Cocker, author of Birders, writes the Country Diary from Norfolk. There are also diaries written by a leading Suffragette, one of Rupert Brookes mistresses, and even one of The Guardians printers.

Martin Wainwright has found diaries to reflect the changing of the countryside over 100 years—from the prevalence of owls in World War I trenches full of vermin to the plant surveys of World War II bombsites.
