Product description

This is a brand new title designed as a companion to the best-selling RSPB Handbook of British Birds. This RSPB-endorsed guide includes sections covering over 200 of the mammal, bird, amphibian and reptile, invertebrate, spider, insect, butterfly, moth, wild flower, garden plant, tree and shrub, and mushroom and toadstool species you are likely to find in your garden. The concise, practical text covers identification, habits, characteristics, food and garden conservation. Additional introductory sections about garden habitats detail, among other topics, how to plant for the seasons, how to make a pond or bog garden to attract new species into your garden, and how to build a hedgehog box or a nest box for birds to encourage your garden visitors to stick around for longer. This brand new RSPB Handbook provides a complete, single source of basic information to our most familiar garden wildlife.
