There are many reasons why people choose to live in or visit Suffolk but the wildlife may well be one of them. This is found in abundance in the RSPB's chain of coastal nature reserves, running from Dingle Marshes in the north, to Boyton and Hollesley Marshes in the south.
This new book will help you to find these reserves, guide you around them, explain their history and management, tell you which birds to expect in each season and give you details of the other animals and plants to be found there.
Written and produced by members of the RSPB Woodbridge Local Group, as a successor to their previous book Spread Your Wings, its 124 pages are lavishly illustrated with maps and stunning photographs of wildlife. Suffolk's Wildlife Coast is packed with up-to-date information and data on species numbers and breeding success rates direct from the wardens and managers of the individual reserves.
Suffolk's Wildlife Coast has been produced to show local residents and visitors alike the richness of wildlife waiting to be discovered. But it is also written in the context of the present challenges to wildlife and the success stories in dealing with these. A Foreword by Mike Clarke RSPB Chief Executive and an introductory chapter by Paul Forecast RSPB Regional Director, Eastern England emphasise this.
