About the Author
Richard Moores is a young naturalist with a wealth of practical experience of mammal-watching around Britain.
Top customer reviews
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
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
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.
