About this book
This is the first book to explore in detail every RSPB reserve in Britain, from the wild forests of Caledonia and teeming seabird cities of the northern coasts, to the rolling heathlands, pristine wetlands and urban oases of the south.
Here you'll find everything you need to plan and enjoy days out at some of the best wildlife-watching places anywhere, with full details of access arrangements, visitor facilities, advice on when to visit and the wildlife you can expect to see throughout the year.
For every reserve you'll find a map of how to get here and, where appropriate, the trails around the reserve and the habitats you'll find, so you can plan your visit according to what you'd like to see and how much time you have to visit.
Illustrated throughout with colour photographs of these beautiful wild places and the animals and plants that live in them.
Marianne Taylor has been a lifelong wildlife enthusiast with a particular interest in birds. She worked at Christopher Helm for three years and Birdwatch magazine for two, and is now a freelance writer and editor, working on natural history books and magazines.
