About this book

This first guide to British wildlife experiences packaged into 52 weekend-sized breaks highlights the best of British wildlife – from tiny silver-spotted skippers to gargantuan basking sharks, from seabird skyscrapers to autumn fungi. For both the experienced wildlife tourist and the novice, the suggestions criss-cross England, Scotland and Wales. With stunning colour photos the author shows when, where and how to see Britain's most exciting wildlife – complete with inspiring itineraries, engaging descriptions, detailed directions and tips on how to find, identify and enjoy British animals and plants. Each entry gives details on species of interest, the landscapes they inhabit and on how to plan the weekend. A 'at a glance' box summarizes details with a thumbnail map. Each entry suggests accommodation.

Media reviews

"[...] 52 Wildlife Weekends will provide many with the inspiration to get close to nature somewhere across our islands, and might add a few destinations to the bucket lists of those already enthused. This is a guide well worth buying — regardless of your location, interest or expertise on anything wildlife-related. Let yourself be inspired!"
– Alan Tilmouth, Thursday 19th September 2013,

"[...] The '52 weekends’ format is a bit of a constraint, with which the author copes pretty well. Personally, I'd like more of my weekends in the spring and summer and fewer in autumn and winter, please. Why can't we have three-day (and sunny) weekends from May-August and a few one-day weekends in autumn and winter to balance things up? If you want, like l do, to see Southern Damselfly, Basking Shark, Duke of Burgundy, and Breckland Speedwell, then this book will remind you when to start looking and where to try. This is a good reminder that Britain has plenty of wildlife if you go to the right places, at the right times. If it encourages a few more 'staycations’ then the air miles saved might offset the extra miles driven by naturalists clutching this book and turning up at the same places at the same times."
– Dr Mark Avery, British Wildlife 25(2), pp. 150, December 2013
