Includes essays about nature in West London. There was a lot of beautiful pictures and some really interesting facts about the area. It focuses on the places in West London as the title states and it has parks and all kinds of green spaces. I enjoyed it.
This will make a great coffee table book. Will definitely look out for all the different animals when I next visit London.
This is a gorgeous book! Loved the photography, the quotes are lovely, and it made me bookmark places to see in London. I think this would make a beautiful addition to anyone's living room.
As a nature photographer who dreams of travel, this was a great way to get a taste of that side of London to hold me over until I (hopefully) can visit in person someday. Filled with gorgeous photography, it’s a great glimpse into a side of London often overlooked by travelers. This would make a great coffee table book.
Thank you Ian Alexander, Susanne Masters, Roger Tichborne, Wanda Bodnar, Gary Backler, Lisa Woodward, Philip Briggs, Aurora Metro, Supernova Books, and NetGalley for providing this ARC for review consideration. All opinions expressed are my own.
Nice pictures of wildlife you would never know some of them were there in London it’s wild like the big stags and heron type birds while swans and ducks make sense.
This is not just another coffee table book. West london wildlife is jam-packed with amazing photos, some which are breathtaking and transport you to the locations.
This book not only informs the readers on why parks, wildlife and waterlands are important, but educates us on all that lives there.
There are great insights on how the flora and fauna intertwine, interesting history on park usage, a rich history of the trees and buildings within the park grounds, details the ecosystems of the resident birds, insects, spiders, fungi, exotic plants, and the farming of the lands and rivers.
Stunning photography! The animals and landscapes captured in this book are breathtaking. I live in the US and hope I get to visit and experience Richmond Park one day!
What a lovely book! I hail from South East London / Kent Borders so I often venture into Kent for the scenery and Wildlife - however I am now inspired to take a trip to West London! My partner & I are keen wildlife photographers and I am excited at the prospect of all the lovely wildlife we might find in the places mentioned in this book. I really enjoyed the mix of photography and history on the areas. A lovely read!
Beautiful photography throughout is interspersed with inspirational quotes by such diverse characters as William Shakespeare, Andy Warhol and Sir David Attenborough. Divided into chapters about different areas of open space in West London, there are a whole host of interesting facts about the biodiversity that can be found there. It has given me a taste for what I might see when next I venture to explore some of the beautiful parks and other wild spaces near me.
Having lived in West London all my life I was really interested to see what areas I knew here.
My local venue in here is Ruislip lido, loved reading about the history of the lido.
Many places in here I have visited and a few I haven't like the Wetland but this will be on my list.
Beautiful photographs my favourites ones are the red deer and Jackdaw and mandarin duck both by James Yates, both stunning I would absolutely love to frame these photographs.
