This work examines the large variety of tracks which are left by animals and birds as they move about in the wild. This edition not only helps the reader to discover whether it was a woodpecker or a grouse, a red or fallow deer, but also whether it was walking, trotting, running or jumping. Then there are signs so subtle that they could easily go unnoticed - a hazlenut gnawed in one way, for example, shows it has been eaten by a wood mouse, whereas a bank vole will leave quite a different mark. In addition to tracks and feeding signs, the book also covers shelters - in fact all kinds of visible traces left by birds and animals have been illustrated and described. The guide to footprints has also been amalgamated into one section, to enable easier identification, and numerous new photographs have been included to give a clearer idea of what you should be looking for.
