"What will be your summer-wildlife highlight? A dawn chorus combining birds of woodland and wetland? Lying in a meadow of orchids and ox-eye daisies? A boat trip to an offshore island where puffins peer curiously at you? Or a dune tiger beetle, scurrying along the sand beneath the bluest of summer skies? This book celebrates the special, the rare and the spectacular." A Summer of British Wildlife by James Lowen #100dayswild
