FIELD GUIDE TO THE BIRDS OF THE BRITISH ISLES, A FIELD GUIDE TO THE BIRDS OF THE BRITISH ISLES, A
Ref N655H

Birds have always held a special fascination for mankind. The study of the avian species did more than simply spur Homo Sapiens on to conquer the skies; birds have also permeated the cultural and spiritual fabric of our lives. Add to this the fact that bird-watching is a pursuit that can be followed in town, country and off the coast all year round, without sophisticated equipment, and it is hardly surprising that so many look to it as a source of relaxation and inspiration.

If observation is the primary pleasure, it is enhanced by greater knowledge and understanding. This book focuses on the 180, commonest species which are either native to Britain or regular visitors to these shores. Concise physical descriptions are given for each bird, both at rest and in flight, and distinctive behaviour patterns are also detailed. Articulating the voice of a particular species is fraught with difficulty, but as birdsong can often be the key to identification this has also been included. The habitat for each species is briefly described. For migrant birds the information given relates to the British habitat. Nesting and breeding habits are also outlined, providing details of egg-laying and the number of broods produced. Location maps show the distribution and range of each species, including seasonal migration patterns.

Gloriously illustrated and with clear, succinct descriptions, this superb guide will enable amateur enthusiasts to identify each species with confidence and extend their knowledge and awareness of the rich diversity of British birdlife.

FIELD GUIDE TO THE WILDLIFE OF THE BRITISH ISLES, A FIELD GUIDE TO THE WILDLIFE OF THE BRITISH ISLES, A
Ref N656H

Post-war Britain has seen vast swathes of the countryside developed and habitat destruction on an unprecedented scale. Even so, our towns, woodlands, hedgerows and rivers still teem with wildlife. This book celebrates the rich diversity of British wildlife, its mammals, birds, arthropods, reptiles and fish. Nearly 200 species are described in detail, with maps showing where each can be located, along with information on habitats and feeding habits.

The life cycles and behaviour of many of these creatures are an endless source of fascination. The salmon may spend up to four years at sea before returning to the river where it was born to spawn; the stratified order that can be seen in a honey bee colony is an extraordinary example of social cohesion; the cuckoo allows other birds to rear its young, the ultimate abdication of responsibility.

Increased pollution levels have had an adverse effect on many creatures, in some cases catastrophically so. Human activity has forced many to demonstrate one of nature's most remarkable characteristics: the ability to adapt in order to survive. The return of the Osprey in Scotland and the revival of fish stocks in rivers such as the Thames are among the encouraging success stories.

This superbly illustrated, authoritative guide will enable the amateur enthusiast to make positive identifications with confidence, and provide a wealth of information on the natural history of all the main wildlife species indigenous to Britain.
