For most people wandering through the beautiful landscape of the Brecon Beacons is pleasure enough, but sooner or later you may ask yourself, what is that little bird or flower that you see on most of your walks?
The problem with most guides is that many of the animals, insects, rocks or plants in them are rarities, and therefore probably not the one you have just seen. This guide will help you to identify the ones that you are likely to see on your walks in the uplands of the Brecon Beacons.
Don’t throw your comprehensive guides away though! Once you can easily identify the things you are familiar with, the rarities will stand out and be much easier to pin down.
Kevin Walker lives in the Brecon Beacons, and has been a professional mountain leader and hill guide for almost four decades. A self-confessed mountain addict, he ran ML training courses for several years, and has written many books including “Wild Country Camping”, “The Essential Hillwalkers’ Guide”, “Undiscovered Wales”, and “Mountain and Moorland Navigation”. He runs a wide range of navigation and hill skills courses, as well as offering personal tuition, 1:1 coaching, and private guiding. Further details of his courses are available on his web site at www.mountain-activities.com.
When not teaching or guiding, he spends most of his free time exploring, photographing and writing about the less well known parts of Wales, with occasional trips to further flung hills, most recently in Australia and New Zealand.
