This is the long-awaited re-issue of the bestselling classic. Brought right up to date and with new illustrations and a gallery of superb photographs, this is the perfect introduction to the bats living in Britain. The text is complemented by new fine digital drawings and cartoons by Guy Troughton. This edition also features a gallery of extraordinary images by renowned wildlife photographer Frank Greenaway. A review on the previous edition by the RSPCA says:
At last, a good popular book giving details of the lives of bats. It is packed with facts about the much maligned bat; it explodes myths, opens doors for amateur research, explains projects and much more. It is extremely readable and is an excellent reference book for anyone interested in these fascinating animals.”
This book is Volume 7 of the British Natural History Collection, and is aimed at all those with an interest in the mammals and birds of Britain. All the books have been written by people with a first-hand knowledge of the species through their work or research. Rich in scientifically-researched information each volume is written and illustrated in a style that will appeal to both young and old.
