All the year round - nature's almanac

Isabel Minhós Martins · Bernardo P. Carvalho

New revised and improvised edition

What is the best week of the year to see the ladybugs awakening? And when can we see the first swallows? What is the best time to listen to the night singing of a nightingale? And to listen to the deer’s’ roar? If I want to set up a nest box, when should I do it? And what about the stars? Which is the best season to see Sirius, the brightest star in the sky? And when do migratory birds pass by here? 

"A whole year" invites us to experience nature throughout the year.  It challenges us to observe the cycles of plants and animals and to discover some of the most amazing changes happening around us every month, week after week, during the 365 days Earth turns around the sun.

"A whole year" is a supplement to the book "Out There" (also edited by Planeta Tangerina), challenging readers with proposals, tours and observations, most suited for each season and selected according to the calendar of our country and to the species that inhabit it.

"A whole year": a timeless almanac, to go “out there” and make countless discoveries!
