What will be your summer wildlife highlight? Lying in a meadow of orchids and ox-eye daisies? A dawn chorus combining birds of woodland and wetland? A boat trip to an offshore island where puffins peer curiously at you, barely an arm’s length away? Or a dune tiger beetle, scurrying along a sand dune beneath the bluest of summer skies? From delicate pasqueflowers to gargantuan basking sharks, seabird skyscrapers to ostentatious otters – A Summer of Wildlife celebrates the special, the rare and the spectacular across England, Scotland and Wales.

Following the success of52 wildlife weekends, this guide delves deeper into nature’s richest months – May to August. With practical information including options to extend the itinerary to a weekend and grid references to aid navigation – this Bradt guide has something for wildlife experts and novices alike. What are you waiting for?
