Guide to Garden Wildlife

I know a few people who read this blog get a significant proportion of their wildlife fix from their back gardens.

So I thought I would mention that British Wildlife Publishing who publish the excellent British Wildlife magazine and some excellent field guides on Butterflies and Dragonflies have a new wildlife book called a Guide to Garden Wildlife.

The prepublication price is £11.95

I snaffled this from the website.

Written and illustrated by Richard Lewington
Introduction by Ken Thompson
ISBN 978-0-9531399-7-2
208 pages, paperback
Full colour throughout with more than 900 illustrations

RRP £12.95 Publication April 2008
Pre-publication special offer price: £11.95 (p&p free, UK only)

A superb new guide to the full range of wildlife in your garden. From blue tits to bumblebees and hedgehogs to hawkmoths, this guide has got it covered. Illustrated by Richard Lewington, acknowledged as one of the finest natural history artists in Europe, with the birds by his brother, Ian, one of our most respected bird artists. Extensive introduction to the ecology of the garden and the incredible array of animals that can be found there. More than 900 colour artworks and photographs of over 500 species likely to be found in a garden in Great Britain and Ireland. Easy-to-use format with artwork plates opposite text descriptions. Includes detailed descriptions and information on the life history, behaviour and occurrence of each species. Practical information on creating a pond for wildlife, making nest boxes and feeding birds.

I suspect I'll get a copy, the other books have been so good, and I'll post a review.
