A great new wildlife guide for Devon, the first in a new series. For many years there has been an astonishing lack of good regional guides, and this series looks set to fill the gap. 'Secret Nature of Devon' is readable, attractively produced with splendid colour photographs, informative (on species, habitats and ecology) without being overly technical, and a handy gazetteer of the best wildlife viewing sites, complete with directions, OS map references, and contact information for would-be visitors.
From the publisher's announcement:
'Secret Nature of Devon is an inspirational introduction to the unique character of Devon's countryside, and the animals and plants that are special to the county. The book explores the extraordinary richness of Devon's wildlife habitats: estuaries, farmland, fresh water, heathland, limestone and chalk, Lundy, moorland, sand dunes, sea cliffs, sea shore, woodland, wood pasture and parkland.
It includes a comprehensive list of the species that make Devon special, with the best times and places to see them; details of recommended nature reserves and a map showing their locations; and contact details for local wildlife organisations.
Written and photographed by Andrew Cooper, one of the country's leading wildlife film makers, with advice from county Wildlife Trusts, the RSPB, Butterfly Conservation and many other organisations. The book is the first in a major new nationalwide series.
