A Year in British Wildlife: A Detailed Account Of The Changing Seasons And Its Effects On British Wildlife
Explore Britain’s amazing wildlife and wild places through the eyes and experiences of expert author Mark Ward, who is known to millions of readers across the country as Editor in Chief of the RSPB’s flagship magazine Nature’s Home.
Mark has travelled to every corner of the country to track down many exciting species and spectacles, including rutting Red Deer, marauding Orcas and secretive Wild Boar, along with the most travelled species of bird and butterfly in the world visiting our shores.
The book is broken down into a month-by-month guide, outlining the best wildlife spectacles throughout the year and offering key advice on where to see them and how to make the most of each event. Illustrated with eye-catching colour photos of the country’s most exciting natural spectacles, the book covers many events that can be seen in any local nature reserve or garden – winter bird feeding, frogs emerging and bumblebee ID – to tracking down more specialised events – visiting seabird colonies, watching Pine Martens and finding orchids to name just three. Packed with practical tips on everything from finding fungi to getting to grips with the many fascinating species of hoverflies.
A Year in British Wildlife is an essential read and a genuine eye-opener for nature lovers old and new, and will provide a lifetime’s worth of unforgettable wild experiences within its pages.
