Nature by Night: A Guide to Observation and Identification by Vincent Albouy
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is the first book devoted solely to the mysterious world of nocturnal and crepuscular wildlife in Britain and Europe. For the naturalist, watching wildlife at night opens up a whole new perspective on the subject and provides an introduction to new ways of experiencing habitats and the creatures that live in them. "Nature by Night" offers a wealth of advice on how to find particular species. It encourages the use of senses other than sight, and the taking part in specialist activities such as moth-trapping and bat-detecting.It includes 250 individual species accounts of mammals, birds, amphibians, reptiles, invertebrates and plants, which encompass some of the common species and many of the rarer ones that might inspire a twilight or nocturnal expedition into the countryside. Nightjar, Barn Owl, Badger, Otter, Greater Horseshoe Bat, Natterjack Toad, Great Crested Newt, Death's Head Hawkmoth and Black Scorpion are just a few of the featured species. The 300 exquisite illustrations provide essential help with identification and will serve to inspire many sleepless nights out in the field in search of nature.
