Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book.

I have had a lot of Collins natural history books over the years and they are a boon to the amateur naturalist.

This would be a great gift for gardeners and particularly for youngsters who are showing an interest in natural history.

Don't expect to identify everything with this book but it will point you in the right direction as to what it is.

May also be a nice book to keep in the car.

Hard to get a better book than this.

Regards.

I have a number of natural history guidebooks but I bought this cheap at a NT sale and am very impressed. Its sometimes difficult to find what you're trying to identify in individual guidebooks unless you have an idea what something is already so this general guide is a good start and it saves carrying lots of books round. I favour this over my Collins british wildlife photoguide as the photographs are clearer and its information is better laid out. Infact the photos are so beautifully clear and the sections of information such as the life cycle of the poplar hawk moth and how to improve your garden for different wildlife types that its enjoyable to just sit and flick through it..

Well presented book though flicking through it, I've read the synopsis on hedgehogs which says attract them to your garden with milk and bread. I'm not sure giving milk to a lactose intolerant hedgehog is a brilliant idea but overall the books seems very informative and well photographed.

I do as much as I can to attract wildlife into my north London garden and my allotment too. I am fine recognising most birds and butterflies, and have plenty of frogs, toads and newts, but wanted to know more about the bugs, beetles and flying insects that abound. This book is a joy. There is clear and interesting text about what can be done to improve the garden for wildlife and wonderful photos which make identification a doddle.
An essential book for any wildlife gardener

Within 5 minutes of opening this book, I was able to identify two pretty little 'weeds' that grow in my garden, after many unsuccessful attempts via web searches. It has enabled me to quickly identify the juveniles of several bird species by providing photos and descriptions that are absent from the RSPB web site. The photos are lovely, and informative (see especially the photos of small mammal skulls). A very worthwhile purchase that will continue to be used and enjoyed over the years!

A truly comprehensive book useful for all who have a garden of any size, whether a tiny patch or medium-size like mine. The hundreds of stunningly clear, bright photos are mostly taken by the author and by 30 other talented photographers. I shall certainly be more aware of the plethora of wildlife right there in my own surroundings. This book was mentioned in the interesting illustrated website entitled Wild Yorkshire by Richard Bell who also writes for the monthly Dalesman magazine.

This is a first class pictorial book with notes on what you will see in your garden and everything you will not see even if it is there.
The main sections cover birds,moths and butterflies,reptiles and amphibians,insects,mammals,trees,wild flowers and fungi.
For each species there is an excellent picture (if a bit small),and notes that include Latin name,size description,habitats and status.
An essential if you are interested in your garden.
