I found this book as a last minute Christmas present for my Husband it arrived in plenty of time and he couldn't put it down as it is packed full of useful facts. Very well worth the money and in very good condition, very happy with it.

Nearly all my other books on tracking make references to this one.
Great reference guide for European animal spoor.
Small enough to fit easily in any backpack, and complete enough to help you decipher any kind of track.
I managed to put my hands on the latest edition published in French and compared the two... that last edition sure is better than this one, more precise text, and drawings are on a white background instead of a grey one (more difficult to read).
But hey, it was only 0,01£ :-)))
A must-have !

This is the second time I've bought a copy of this book, the first time for me and this time for my brother.
Great book, very informative indeed and not just about animal tracks.
Their ways of eating leave signs, where and how they scat and all sorts of subtle ways to determine who went there.

In my opinion it gives greater depth into the animal world and for me better understanding of them.

Excellent book that lives in my van and comes out often.

I've rated this as four stars on the basis that I like it, but I'm a beginner on animal tracks and signs and I don't have anything else to compare it with to say how comprehensive a guide it is.

The introduction to animal prints is good, with an explanation of the structure of different species feet and the associated gaits responsible for prints.

It also covers feeding signs, droppings, food pellets, homes and shelters, and various other signs. It even shows signs left by birds.

There are lots of good quality illustrations, diagrams and colour photographs throughout. It distinguishes between signs left by species that might easily be confused.

I really like this book and think it's a good buy for anyone interested in observing wildlife, particularly wildlife recorders.

This book does exactly what I expected, good layout and easy to understand. There is lots of information about the mammals I am particularly interested in. Looking forward to putting the knowledge to good use out in the countryside in conjunction with camera traps. I couldn't believe it when I saw it was only one penny!! The condition is very good with very few marks and no loose pages. Many thanks

I was looking for a new book for this but it seems to be out of print, however I was not disappointed as this was in very good condition - almost new and just what I was looking for. Delighted.
