One of three debut titles in our exciting new series of miniature field guides. This is the ultimate keep-in-your-pocket guide to the butterflies of Britain and other parts of northern and central Europe. It may be diminutive in size but it punches well above its weight in terms of usefulness, being packed with more than 180 images of all the species most likely to be encountered.
For each of the 80 species accounts there is at least one photograph for identification and a brief written account listing ID features, range and habitat, behaviour, food plants and flight period. The book covers everything from tricky-to-identify skippers and browns to iconic species such as Swallowtail, Red Admiral, Silver-washed Fritillary and Purple Emperor. There is also a section on the most commonly encountered day-flying moths.
The easy-to-use layouts and small size make the book ideal for taking on walks or days out. It is perfect for beginners or wildlife-watchers of an intermediate level, and also for children as a first book on butterflies.
