Hi, could anyone recommend a good informative book on sika in the uk please.
I will second that, the book mentioned is very detailed indeed although more science based it's still very useful to the layman ie you and me it has a chapter covering the British Isles which is of interest, as we know sika behaviour varys with location but you can apply the information within its pages to your own observations I would recommend it highly..sorry Jabalihunter but I am keeping my copy...lolThere’s a book on Sika biology snd management published by Springer, but it’s very expensive (I wouldn’t mind a copy if anyone is selling one).
I need to afford to retire first! I'd also point out that I am certainly no expert on sika. I have stalked them in all of their four major UK population areas but would need to do lots of research and lean heavily on the pros/semi-pros on the ground as well as the scientists/vets.A book dedicated to UK and Irish sika would be well received get it started mate..
