About this book

Land Mammals of Britain is an identification guide to the major wild and naturalised land mammals (excluding bats) of Britain and Ireland.

This land mammal identification chart consists of 8 fold-out pages featuring full-colour illustrations, making the identification of terrestrial mammals of Britain and Ireland easier to achieve. Beautiful colour paintings of each mammal show the main features to look out for. Confirmatory text accompanies the colour paintings, covering body size, body colour and shape, habitat and distribution.

Includes are rodents, such as rats, mice, squirrels and voles; insectivores, such as hedgehogs, moles and shrews; carnivores, such as foxes, badgers, otters, pine martens, stoats, weasels and polecats; lagomorphs, i.e. rabbits, brown hares and mountain hares; and deer, including red deer, fallow deer, roe deer and muntjac. Other mammals covered in separate FSC guides include bats and marine mammals.

Other free-living domesticated and introduced mammals live in some areas. Free-living herds of ponies occur in the Welsh mountains, New Forest, Dartmoor and Exmoor. However these herds are managed, and they all have owners. Herds of feral goats live in Scotland, north Wales, the Cheviots and North Devon. These stocky hardy goats were first introduced by Celtic and Roman farmers. A mix of escapees and deliberate releases from wild boar farms have resulted in breeding populations of wild boar in several areas such as the Forest of Dean. Trial reintroduction programmes for beavers are running in Scotland and a few other locations. The size ranges shown in this guide are an indication of adult size, although of course youngsters may be smaller. The colours shown are the common forms, but albino (white) and melanic (black) forms can occur.

These popular wildlife field guides measure 24.5 cm × 17.5 cm and are extremely lightweight so are the perfect identification aid for popping in your bag when heading outside. All wildlife identification guides are laminated, meaning they are showerproof for use outside and can be wiped clean.
