THE SCOTTISH WILDCAT
BY CHRISTOPHER CLEGG £20
Christopher Clegg’s look at Britain’s most endangered mammal is a fascinating insight into the Felis Silvestris. Looking at the history of the European wildcat and its arrival in Britain, it follows accounts of the animal and sightings of it all over Scotland, their importance to the clans and heraldic crests, as well as their current habitats and diet. The chapter on swimming – once noted by Gavin Maxwell – is a real highlight.
