About this book

With a rich diversity of habitats from internationally important estuaries to delicate mosslands and woodlands carpeted in bluebells, you don’t have to look far in Cheshire to find wildlife that we all love. From wheeling flocks of wading birds to rare flowers and secretive mammals that can make your day whenever you see them, Cheshire's Favourite Wildlife is a celebration of just 50 favourite species. Childhood encounters, inspiring discoveries and chance opportunities that have shaped careers can all be found in this delightful collection of personal experiences. David Norman commissioned and edited these 50 fascinating stories and Tom Marshall found the eye-catching images to accompany them.
