About this book

Highlights the natural world on your doorstep, giving a guide to the wild plants, animals and butterflies, as well as country folklore, archaeology and geology, that can be seen each month, along with detailed lists of events and organisations which will allow you to find out more and get involved. Illustrated with line drawings and paintings by fellow volunteer for Butterfly Conservation North Wales Branch, Alan Wagstaff, who designed most of the guide leaflets for the North Wales Wildlife trust, and who sadly died of Cancer in 2005 at the early age of 34.

The publisher submits £1 from the sale of each book to Butterfly Conservation.

"I really did enjoy it, and see it very much in the tradition of naturalist writing that helps keep people both informed and passionate about places and wildlife. And there can be few more important things than that!" - Jonathon Porritt, OBE, Forum for the Future

"Delightful and charismatic little book ... a lovely piece of nature writing that you'll thoroughly enjoy" - Malcolm Tait, Editor, `Butterfly' magazine

"There is plenty of material here to feed an interest in the natural world. Highly recommended." - James Robertson, editor, Natur Cymru.

With its chatty style, this is an easy read. For me what marks it out is the author's insatiable appetite for involving others in the pleasures of working for wildlife... highly recommendedNatur Cymru: The Nature of Wales Magazine"I really did enjoy it, and see it very much in the tradition of naturalist writing that helps keep people both informed and passionate about places and wildlfie. And there can be few more important things than that!"Jonathon Porritt, Forum for the Future"A passionate and well-informed volume, very much in the tradition of naturalist writing, which will inspire an interest in places and wildlife.
