Glasgow and the area around it are full of wildlife in a variety of scenic environments. Within the city there are many peaceful green spaces, including woodlands with bluebells and ancient oaks, wetlands with herons and water voles and country parks with deer. Not far beyond Glasgow there are birds of prey on high moorlands, lizards and insect-eating plants on a raised bog, internationally important populations of birds at the Clyde Estuary and even a sandy beach with rockpool creatures. These and many other wonderful sites are described in this book, which will have something for everyone, from the committed naturalist to those planning a family day out. The book also looks at the geology of the local area, noting where you can see and collect fossils and where the rocks reveal how the landscape itself was formed. Includes 50 in-depth descriptions of places to enjoy nature, all within 40 km of Glasgow and easily accessible by car and, in most cases, by public transport, along with advice about what animals, plants and fungi can be found where, and the best time of year to look for them.
