About this book

This accessible guidebook will help people discover more about the wildlife in and around Glasgow. It describes a wide variety of scenic places to explore and will have something for everyone, from the committed naturalist to those planning a family day out.

The 50 sites include city greenspaces - such as woodlands with bluebells and ancient oaks, wetlands with herons and water voles and country parks with deer - and many diverse environments just outside the city: within 25 miles of Glasgow there are birds of prey on high moorlands, lizards and insect-eating plants on a raised bog, internationally important populations of birds at the Clyde Estuary and even a sandy beach with rock pool creatures. The book also looks at the geology of the local area, noting where you can see and collect fossils and where the rocks reveal how the landscape itself was formed.

Features of the book
50 in-depth descriptions of places to enjoy nature in beautiful surroundings - all within 25 miles of Glasgow and easily accessible by car and, in most cases, by public transport.
Recommendations of an additional 50 further places of interest nearby.
Advice about what animals, plants and fungi can be found where, and the best time of year to look for particular species.
Detailed information about how to travel to sites and notes about any facilities provided.
A fascinating introduction to the natural history of the Glasgow area, covering subjects from the creation of the Campsie Fells, to woolly rhinoceroses and alien plants.
