Tracks and Signs of the Animals and Birds of Britain and Europe
by Lars-Henrik Olsen
This book enables you to easily identify the tracks and signs left by a wide variety of mammal and bird species found in Britain and Europe, covering behaviours ranging from hunting, foraging, and feeding to courtship, breeding, and nesting.
It includes detailed drawings of footprints and tracks of large and small mammals, sections on mammal scat, bird droppings, and the feeding signs of animals on food sources such as nuts, cones, and rose hips. The book then describes specific mammal species, providing information on size, distribution, behaviour, habitat, and similar species, as well as more specific detail on tracks and scat.

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.
