Celebrating the wildlife and landscapes of Britain's most beautiful and vital habitats, Wild Coast explores the places where land meets sea around the British Isles, with over 200 breath-taking pictures.
Brought to life over 197 pages, Wild Coasts explores the many habitats found around the UK, from sand, shingle, estuary and wetlands, to rocks, cliffs and headlands, urban coasts, islands and the open sea in its seven main chapters. In each detailed section you can find places to visit, discover more about the characteristics of each terrain, local wildlife, how our landscapes are formed, activities to enjoy and what to look out for, from seashells to hunt for on sandy beaches to insect life to seek out on wetlands.
No stone is left unturned as you read about the fascinating species that inhabit a rockpool, or importantly how to protect them, the wonderful birdlife that calls Britain home, endless acres of estuarine mud packed with squirming invertebrates waiting to be discovered, as well as dazzling chalk outcrops, clifftop meadows and shingle beaches teeming with terns and plovers.
A true celebration of Britain's magnificent coastline, Wild Coast is a book to be enjoyed and treasured by all ages and interests.
