Although I wanted a more in depth read about bats this book was a good refresher.
The book discusses and explores the history of bats and humans, their evolution, biology and ecology, British bats by species, conservation and how to go about observing and sudying our flying mammalian friends.
If you are new to bats or know the basics about them this is an excellent book to send you further on your way. The writing style is clear and concise making the book easy to read even when tackling the subject of echolocation and its basic physics which some may find daunting.
In the appendix the reader will find a guide to identifying bats in the hand in which there are charming illustrations of smiley British bats, perfect for brightening even the gloomiest of days.
