PS: why is it so?

Thinking about all your replies, two notions occur to me – First, that it’s likely characteristic of this literary form (i.e. the journal-style natural history) that it telescopes time, so that sightings of such a “glamour” species seem populous within the book’s geography due to the author’s thrilled recording of every peregrine’s passage, within compressed . . . → Read More: PS: why is it so?
