About this book

This is a unique and hugely entertaining anthology of facts, amazing stories, snippets and lore about the birds, bugs and blooms of Britain. It includes hundreds of nuggets of practical (and not so practical) information to fascinate and amuse, including: how to identify animal footprints, the good manners guide on how to behave in a birdwatchers' hide, how gossamer got its name, how to tell the difference between a stoat and a weasel, the bizarre mating habits of dragonflies, and what the connection is between the table football game, Subbuteo and the small falcon-type bird, and, the hobby.

* It is a superb compendium to pop in the rucksack on a day out.
* It is perfect to keep at home to find out exactly what is going on in your garden.
* It is part of a highly collectible series.
* It features an elastic closure, back pocket, and blank pages for notes.
