About this book

Introductory guide to the wildlife of Britain covering 500 of the most common species of bird, wild flowers, trees, wild animals, insects, butterflies and moths, and reptiles and amphibians. Each page, devoted to an individual species, contains a detailed species description and a full-colour photograph. Also featured is a calendar grid giving a month-by-month guide to when you can expect to see that particular species. For birds and flowers a distribution map is included, and for birds, trees and butterflies, additional artwork highlights important identification features. Packed full of photographs, maps and illustrations, this is the perfect starting point for those who want to learn more about the rich variety of wildlife that can be found in Great Britain.
