The perfect companion for wildlife-spotting adventures, this pocketable field guide covers over a thousand animal, plant and fungi species native to Britain, complete with stunning photographs and handy maps.

Identifying British wildlife is quick and easy with this complete practical field guide to the native animals, plants, and fungi of Britain and Ireland.

The pocket-sized format means Pocket Nature Wildlife of Britain is perfectly portable and ideal for slipping into your rucksack while rambling or popping into the glove compartment for trips further afield. Packed with in-situ photography and text written by experts, this indispensible wildlife book covers everything from trees, wild flowers, and fungi to wild animals, including mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, and insects.

The book is organized into groups that are easily understood and recognized by the complete novice. Coverage is comprehensive, with over 1,000 native species covered. Each entry includes a prominent photo of the subject for identification, supporting photos that show important details or variations, and a data panel to summarize key facts consistently. A simple text profile picks out the most useful details to aid accurate identification and provides interesting background information. Maps show you where you can expect to find a species, so you can plan your spotting and make the most of your surroundings, whether you are on a holiday browse or serious quest.
