If you're planning a trip to England next year, and you love wildlife and walking, then this is the book for you.  Planning ahead is the big secret when it comes to having a successful trip.  Knowing what you can ahead of time enables you to make the most of your vacation time.  Britain's Wildlife Trusts have done an awful lot of good restoring areas back to how they should look, which is great for the creatures who live there, and simply wonderful for all nature lovers to enjoy.  The book is arranged by areas: South West, South East, East, East Midlands, West Midlands, North, Wales, Scotland, and Ulster.  There are also accompanying maps (not to scale), photographs, and watercolor pictures.  There are telephone, street, and web address contacts for most places, as well as opening times, facilities, directions, parking and walking times, as well as local attractions.  Of course they tell you what you can expect to see in each place so you can decide what it is that interests you and where you'll need to go.  Whether it's birds, butterflies, or bats; deer, badgers, or foxes; lichen, flowers, or fungi, they're all here and much more.  These walks are for everyone - families, people of all ages, novices, and enthusiasts alike.  You also have the opportunity to pass on your findings and experiences to the Trusts.
Conclusion - Extremely useful and a way of helping us benefit from nature.
