Patrick Barkham's Guide to British Butterflies
From the Cumbrian fells to the Broads of his native Norfolk, Patrick Barkham, acclaimed author of Butterfly Isles: A Summer in Search of Our Emperors and Admirals, has travelled the country to present this personal and definitive guide to British butterflies.
All 59 species have been beautifully captured on film in their natural habitat. Detailed descriptions and close-up comparisons with similar species provide comprehensive coverage of each butterfly. Rare vagrants are also featured, as are those species which have sadly become extinct in Britain.
Fascinating background histories and early names of many of the butterflies are described, and the status of each species is illustrated by comparative maps showing distribution changes over the last 30 years. Interviews with leading experts provide additional insights.
With a running time of almost five hours and made to the highest broadcast standards, this easy-to-navigate DVD is a uniquely complete and authoritative guide to Britains butterflies. 290 min.
