About this book

Rivers, Ponds and Lakes explains why water is a good place to live, what equipment you can make (such as a water guage) and what to take. You will learn how water creatures get their air, how to rear pond snails, how to watch fish, and how to view plant structures using a torch and glass.

Praise for The New Amateur Naturalist "Wax-jacketed TV prodigy Baker continues his climb to stardom with this entirely excellent guide to DIY nature-spotting. And Baker is the real deal - worth reading and watching because he genuinely knows what he's talking about ! Fun for all the family as well as being both educational and entertaining" FOCUS magazine BBC Wildlife Book of the Month "Quite simply, this is a superb compendium and I would have no hesitation in recommending it to naturalists of all ages and abilities who want to learn something new."
