Mammals of Essex

Mammals of Essex
A new book looking at the 60 species of mammals that have occurred in Essex during the last 200 years has recently been produced.  Published by the Essex Field Club and with a Foreword by Essex resident Germaine Greer, the book includes distribution maps of all resident species and reviews whales, seals, bats, rodents and carnivores as well as fossil species.  The final chapter provides identification tips for similar species and a photo-guide for identifying mammal field signs.  This 272 page hardback book is illustrated in colour throughout and is priced at £20.  For more details, please contact John Dobson on 01245 224408 or at
