The RSPB Nature Tracker's Handbook explains with extensive photography and detailed diagrams how to find and interpret the evidence that animals leave behind - from a pile of mangled feathers to a delicately nibbled mushroom.
The art of nature tracking is very much like learning to read, but instead of reading words, the tracker reads traces. Every animal leaves different traces as it goes about its everyday business. If you learn to read the signs left by footprints, leftover food, droppings and scrapes in the earth, you will soon be able to tell the story of an animal's life, packed with fascinating details and hidden meanings.
In The Nature Tracker's Handbook, Nick Baker demonstrates useful tracker activities, such as how to mount a discarded nymph skin and how to dissect an owl's pellet to reveal its last meal. There's a nature detective in all of us, so get out there and get tracking.
