This review is from: 52 Wildlife Weekends: A Year of British Wildlife-Watching Breaks (Bradt Travel Guides (Wildlife Guides)) (Paperback)
Well I should declare that James is a friend. But I should also declare an interest in promoting British biodiversity in its entirety, and James has written a book that will inspire new naturalists and veteran pan-species listers alike to get into the field and see our wildlife. I love the way this book is written - it would have been so easy to write dull accounts of the logistics of where, when and how. But James has managed to weave all this into a witty and erudite narrative which really brings alive a sense of place and of experiencing wildlife in its natural context. It's very readable.
There is an understandable emphasis on vertebrates, orchids and other more glamorous species but hopefully that leaves the door open for "52 more wildlife weekends" for those who want to see more of the 80,000 species that occur in Britain!
