The following is a list of guide books giving details of locations to watch wildlife in the Bristol area, plus some other books which have sections with similar information. Clicking on the title takes you to the book’s page at the LibraryThing website. If you have any more suggestions of books I can add to the list, I’d be pleased to hear from you.
Books are arranged in my standardised structure, then listed chronologically.
