Field Guide to Pond and River Wildlife of Bri­tain and Europe

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Wild At Home - BY JACK PERKS, NEW HOL­LAND, £14.99 SM

There’s still time for a few fi­nal pic­nics and pad­dles be­fore the sum­mer hol­i­days be­come ob­structed by school-shoe shop­ping. Worth tak­ing along is this handy new tome from freshwater pho­tog­ra­pher Jack Perks, who has com­piled a ros­ter of 200 com­mon wa­tery species (plus a dust­ing of rar­i­ties) to spot across a va­ri­ety of groups. It’s not a pocket guide and might feel a lit­tle weighty in your ruck­sack, but the large, clear pho­tos should help with any brief sight­ings – par­tic­u­larly of com­mon species such as dragons, damsels and freshwater fish.
