A rich and varied collection of original photographs, Wildlife of the Kennet and Avon Canal makes ideal reading for anyone with an interest in UK wildlife. It also makes an excellent souvenir of this quintessential British canal.

Packed with full colour photographs, this book illustrates the range of wildlife that anyone could come across along this waterway. Most of the images were taken using a conventional, hand-held camera, either from the tow path or very close to it. Some of the close-ups were taken using a macro lens, with the camera sometimes mounted on a tripod, elsewhere a telephoto lens was used. There was no use of hides or specialist photographic equipment, beyond that mentioned.


The book includes wildlife spotting suggestions and photographic hints and tips, as well as a collection of wildlife stories. It provides a fabulous introduction to watching and photographing wildlife and will help to enhance your enjoyment of one of Britain’s best-loved canals.

8.5 x 11”, 152 full colour pages, over 370 photographs.






Available worldwide: As well as Amazon, this book is available to order from a range of bookshops and online retailers. Independent booksellers can order copies from a number of distributors, such as Ingram, NACSCORP, Baker & Taylor and CreateSpace Direct.
