Full colour photographs will help with easy identification. Includes advice on how to be a good nature detective, such as best places to see these mammals and how to take notes to aid recognition. Activities at the end of the book show how to make animal homes and identify footprints.
Victoria Munson has been fascinated by wildlife since she was 8 years old, whne she helped her parents to rescue a kestrel with a broken wing. She joined the Young Ornithologist's Club (YOC, part of the RSPB) shortly after and spend many a happy weekend visiting Wildfowl and Wetland Centres, hand-feeding Canada Geese and adopting a Wigeon (Wilbur). Since then, she has made a study of butterflies, homed hedgehogs, worms and ladybirds, and is now enjoying a second childhood through introducing her own children to rockpooling, wildlife spotting and making minibeast homes.
Features an excellent range of animals and some lovely photos.
