For its size, Britain boasts an extraordinarily diverse range of natural environments: mountains, forests, innumerable rivers and streams, 10,000 miles of coastline and even urban settings in which wildlife thrives. Illustrated with over 900 colour photographs, this volume accompanied a major BBC television series in which Alan Titchmarsh turned wildlife detective to explore the habitats of the British Isles. For each type of environment there is an engaging historical introduction, plus detailed field notes on the flora and fauna it supports.
