Popular young television presenter and personality Nick Baker's energetic and lively style enlivens this fascinating guide to Britain's wildlife through the seasons. This richly illustrated and practical book explains what is happening in nature in each month of the year, and provides helpful advice on finding a wide variety of wildlife - often in the most unexpected places. In back gardens or city centres, on the Dorset heaths or in the Scottish Highlands, each season paints a fresh pattern on nature - there is always something new to discover for town and city dwellers or those who live by the sea or in the wilds of the countryside. If you can't identify the old nest exposed in your bare January hedge, or you want to know where to find a badger on a warm June night then Nick Baker's British Wildlife is the perfect book for finding out.
