Whenever i am out n’ about in the hills and countryside i always carry the 600 page Dorling Kindersley Wildlife of Nature book. Half the size and weight of a house brick. It contains 99% of the trees, wild flowers and plants, fungi, lichen, mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates in the UK.
Every day is a school day.
