Irish Wildlife by Paul Steery
Published by Collins in 2004
Irish Wildlife is the essential photographic guide to Ireland’s
wildlife. It briefly describes almost all of the mammals, birds,
fish and butterflies of Ireland likely to be encountered
by the keen amateur naturalist, as well as all the common and widespread
flowers, trees and shrubs.
With over 1,000 colour photographs, this comprehensive guide illustrates
every species described. The photographs are very clear making
identification much easier than many books containing diagrams.
The introduction to the book is by Ireland’s best known wildlife
expert, Derek Mooney of Mooney Goes Wild on One. He reveals where
you can find the best of Ireland’s wildlife. Although primarily
concerned with field identification, a brief description of Ireland’s
natural history is included.
