Product description


`Engagingly written, his infectious enthusiasm jumps from the pages.
`Whether you use this book for reference, to thumb through from time to time, or to read straight through, it will transform your view of these diverse creatures.'
-- Western Morning News, 6 July 2010

Little gem from the Pocket Cornwall stable
--Tavistock Times Gazette, 15.07.10

`well-illustrated field guide to the most commonly encounterd insect species in Cornwall and Scilly ... includes a gazetteer to some of the best sites for seeing these striking creatures.'
--The Countryman, August 2010

`covers the area specified, and makes it far easier to correctly identify the indistinct flutterers... and their crawling companions. ... useful embellishments, such as ideal places for spotting remarkable specimens and a list of organizations and websites for further investigation.'
--My Cornwall, October/November 2010

`excellent photographs and a brief introduction to insects and insect watching... The Odonata are especially well covered... as are the butterflies'
--Atropos, no. 41, Autumn 2010
