Ireland's Wildlife Year is a superbly illustrated survey of the four seasons in the Irish natural environment. It traces the development of plants and trees, the movements of birds and animals and the changing face of the Irish landscape over one calendar year.
There is nothing understated about the seasonal changes in Ireland. This book, driven by the stunning nature photography of Billy Clarke, Eric Dempsey and Carsten Krieger, tracks those changes as they affect plants, trees and shrubs, bird and animal life, the general landscape and the natural environment. Contributors are outstanding experts in their fields. Eric Dempsey writes about birds; Declan Doogue about flora; and Professor Tom Hayden of UCD about fauna.
