9780140051544: Weather Forecasting: The Country Way

You might know that a herd of cows lying down can indicate rain, but what can goats, rabbits and even fish tell you about the weather? And while a red sky at night is a shepherd's delight, what might a rainbow in the evening mean to a cricketer? This delightful little book is peppered with amusing asides and explains how to forecast weather by observing natural barometers like animal behaviour, plant growth and the wind, clouds, stars and moon. Robin Page demonstrates that, by applying common sense to country lore, you'll find it far easier to decide whether to head out for a 10-mile hike or stay tucked up by the fire with a cocoa!
