Synopsis

A unique and hugely entertaining anthology of facts, amazing stories, snippets and lore about the birds, bugs and blooms of Britain. Hundreds of nuggets of practical (and not so practical) information to fascinate and amuse, including: how to identify animal footprints, the good manners guide on how to behave in a birdwatchers' hide, how gossamer got its name, how to tell the difference between a stoat and a weasel, the bizarre mating habits of dragonflies, and what the connection is between the table football game, Subbuteo and the small falcon-type bird, the hobby.
