Light-hearted but packed full of facts, this is the perfect introduction to the bats living in Britain. Phil Richardson shares his knowledge and enthusiasm for these much-maligned creatures and provides an entertaining insight into all aspects of their amazing lives – from their choice of living accommodation to their choice of food, from their elaborate ultrasonic calls to their peculiar ways of adjusting their body temperatures to hibernate.

This is no heavy tome delving into minutiae of bats' body functions; it provides simple down-to-earth information, explodes myths, and reflects the great deal of fun and interest that can be had by watching bats. The text is complemented by new fine digital drawings and cartoons by Guy Troughton. This edition also features a gallery of extraordinary images by renowned wildlife photographer Frank Greenaway.
