Format: Paperback
I purchased this book as an ornithologist, with only a passing interest in mammals. However, I was wonderfully surprised by both the content and the quality of the species accounts within...It is clear that the author has gone to considerable effort to give as much information as is feasible (i.e. is it justifiable to expect my garden to be included!!)

Having found myself in the vacinity of a number of the sites in the book through the course of my birdwatching, I decided to give a few of them a go...with a number of successes.

I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who is keen to attempt to see the rarer species in GB. However, as with all these things, it is not the book that enables you to see the species within, its good fieldcraft, patience and persistence. With al those you'll enjoy success...the book certainly helps though!!

Overall, an excellent effort by the author considering the size of the task

Format: Paperback
This is a useful reference book. Inevitably, some good places to see wild animals are missed out but generally the coverage for Scotland (for which I bought it) is good. There is also a significant amount of information about England and Wales but Ireland is somewhat sketchily covered. About a quarter of the book gives detailed information about the mammals of Britain and Ireland with helpful information about their habits which will help when looking for them.

This book has taken so long to hit the shelves that perhaps that has influenced my review. When I first read that the book was in preparation I was intrigued. Being a birdwatcher I have bought a few 'Where to watch....' and they are generally very good - birds are perhaps a bit more obvious / reliable than mammals. So, I thought, this is surely going to be the best book on nature I have read, and I am going to be driving around seeing Otters and Pine Martens etc etc - amazing considering in all my birdwatching years (25) how few mammals I have seen.

And of course the book does not fulfill the pomp of the title. Excellent reviews of the mammals of GB (and Ireland!!!) and some hints on where to find them but that's all.

I notice my garden was not included but I have seen hedgehog, fox and several bats from there - shame.

Richard Moores has done a great job but the subject matter is just impossibly unpredictable.

I would love to see an Otter in Hampshire - they do exist so I am told, but not according to RM's book.

A bit disappointing I have to say - sorry

Husband saw this book recently on a cruise ship and is really into wildlife so I thought it would be a great present. He loves it.

Format: Paperback
This book gives equal weight in its title to both Britain and Ireland. Unfortunately this is, in my opinion, misleading as Britain gets approx 240 pages split up into logical country areas, whereas Ireland gets approx 5 pages on the whole of the country.

If the author doesn't know Irelands wildlife spots for mammals they would have simply titled the book "Where to match mammals in Britain" instead of including a token section on Ireland.

Due the above, the book became a bit of a dissappointment, especially as I am Irish.
