Lake District Natural History Walks

Lake District Natural History Walks

by: Christopher Mitchell
This stimulating guide provides 18 varied walks where you can discover the natural history of Lakeland, whilst admiring the wonderful scenery. The book is challenging, informative and entertaining, helping you to understand the science that shapes the natural world, but without a formula in sight. A 'case notes' approach shows what clues to look for and how to solve them, teaching you to become a nature detective.

There are well drawn detailed maps of the walk routes, including animal tracks and signs, landscape features plus everything you need for the perfect natural history walk. There are even mysteries and puzzles to solve, making family walks more fun, and an extensive bibliography if you want to find out even more. In his forward, BBC natural history presenter Professor Aubrey Manning describes the book as 'A highly innovative and original guide; eye opening in the best sense of the phrase.'
