Wild Belfast tells the fascinating story of the wild creatures and plants that live within the urban environment of Northern Ireland's capital. It takes the reader on a safari around Greater Belfast - from the inner city and domestic gardens through parks, meadows, wetlands, woodlands and coastal areas. The journey includes the picturesque Lagan Valley, the historical Bog Meadows and the magnificent hills that surround the city. The thousands of starlings circling around Laganside on winter evenings are featured, as are the internationally important waders along the shores of Belfast Lough. Along with foxes, grey crows, house mice and other species that have adapted well to the urban setting, the reader will become acquainted with unusual and rare species that thrive almost unnoticed in quieter corners of the city, such as otters along the Lagan and wild orchids in the hills around the city.
