About this book

Many people are unaware that the city of London is rich in wildlife, and that many of the most interesting and spectacular species can be seen within a few minutes walk of the tourist trail.

The first eight chapters of this book provide an informative where to watch guide describing key sites from the centre to the suburbs, along with what can be expected to be seen there. This ranges from wildfowl and birds of prey in the centre of town to deer and other mammals around Richmond; from butterfly and wildflower hot-spots to a haven for wading birds and Water Voles beside the Thames. Each chapter gives a general overview of the terrain and the wildlife present, and series of boxed texts look in detail at interesting case studies, or personal pages from the notebook.

The final third of the book is a fully illustrated colour identification guide to 600 of the most common or remarkable species found in the capital, covering birds, animals, invertebrates and plants.

Contents

Introduction, The Streets of London, The Thames, The Royal Parks, Deer Parks of the Southwest, Eastern Marshlands: the Thames Estuary, The Lee Valley, Hidden gems, Colour ID section covering 600 species found in London.
