classic wildlife site

The classic wildlife sites articles explore the most special wild places in Britain and Ireland, famed for their rare species and unforgettable wildlife spectacles. The series has covered many of our most important natural areas, from the coastal heathlands of The Lizard to the ancient Caledonian pinewoods of Abernethy Forest. Insight is provided by authors with direct experience of the conservation and management of the site in question, with each piece offering an in-depth account of the geography, history and wildlife, along with information on how to visit. The Classic Wildlife Sites series makes ideal reading for those who want to learn more about their favourite reserves, or for anyone seeking inspiration when planning their next trip.
