About this book

In this unique book Dominic Couzens provides a precise record of what happens in the natural world in Britain for each week of the year. What sets The British Wildlife Year apart from other wildlife books is that it includes individual 'diaries' for all the common animals, from foxes, badgers and hedgehogs to blue tits and honey bees. The book also covers aquatic life, from stickleback spawn to salmon, as well as plants, including the best time to pick blackberries. The author includes monthly highlights of what to look out for and where, including where to see the best wildlife events and displays. From the best time to view the flowering of a bluebell wood to understanding the secretive 'flower dance' of bees, The British Wildlife Year illustrates and explains the natural world around us. With tips and suggestions on places to visit and activities to take part in, this is an engaging book for all wildlife enthusiasts. The British Wildlife Year is as absorbing and surprising as the wildlife that it describes.
