What will be your summer-wildlife highlight? A dawn chorus combining birds of woodland and wetland? Lying in a meadow of orchids and ox-eye daisies? A boat trip to an offshore island where puffins peer curiously at you? Or a dune tiger beetle, scurrying along the sand beneath the bluest of summer skies? From delicate pasqueflowers to gargantuan basking sharks, seabird skyscrapers to ostentatious otters – A Summer of British Wildlife celebrates the special, the rare and the spectacular across England, Scotland and Wales.
Following the success of 52 Wildlife Weekends, this guide delves deeper into nature’s richest months – May to August. With practical information including options to extend your day out to a weekend, and grid references to aid navigation, this Bradt guide has something for wildlife experts and novices alike. So why not join James Lowen in exploring 100 days of summer?
