Product Description

Review

A super book (now on my Christmas list!) for anyone who lives in East Anglia, or visits the popular and rich wildlife sites in Norfolk. --Su Gough, British Trust for Ornithology (BTO)

...The whole book is attractively presented and well laid out. It is also copiously illustrated with photographs, most of which, particularly the orchids, are of high quality… this is a generally useful guide. It will not appeal greatly to the experienced local birder though it may expand his or her horizons to embrace other wildlife. It will, however, be useful to the first-time visitor who wishes to take a first dip into what this fabulous county can offer. --Andy Stoddart, Rare Bird Alert

...The overall impression is of an attractively produced, well-researched book which I thoroughly enjoyed reading. … I think that this is a very useful addition to the county literature, and it will be invaluable to first-time visitors to Norfolk who have a general interest in natural history. Moss Taylor, BirdWatch --Moss Taylor, BirdWatch

Format:Paperback
The book contains huge amounts of really useful information for anyone who is interested in exploring Norfolk's many and varied nature sites and for picking which ones to visit at different times of the year. It is divided into 2 main sections of a wildlife calendar and recommended sites. Each site has information on habitat, access, facilities, length of walk/difficulties, precautions and wildlife. Its slightly biased towards North Norfolk with some obvious exclusions, particularly around Whittlingham/Norwich which have no listings at all. It is thoroughly illustrated with photos, but they of varied quality; with many being badly lit or out of focus. But that said, it is a great book; jam packed full of facts and recommendations and essential for anyone who wants a guide that looks at the full spectrum of wildlife, not just birds but also butterflies, mammals, damselflies/dragonflies, reptiles and flora.
