This is the first book devoted solely to the mysterious world of nocturnal and crepuscular wildlife in Britain and Europe. For the naturalist, watching wildlife at night opens up a whole new perspective on the subject and provides an introduction to new ways of experiencing habitats and the creatures that live in them. "Nature by Night" offers a wealth of advice on how to find particular species. It encourages the use of senses other than sight, and the taking part in specialist activities such as moth-trapping and bat-detecting.It includes 250 individual species accounts of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, invertebrates and plants, which encompass some of the common species and many of the rarer ones that might inspire a twilight or nocturnal expedition into the countryside. Nightjar, Barn Owl, Badger, Otter, Greater Horseshoe Bat, Natterjack Toad, Great Crested Newt, Death's Head Hawkmoth and Black Scorpion are just a few of the featured species. The 300 exquisite illustrations provide essential help with identification and will serve to inspire many sleepless nights out in the field in search of nature.
