Spot British wildlife on your doorstep at these amazing locations...

Our country is amazingly diverse; you’ll find all sorts of landscapes ranging from lush, green pastures to bleak, windswept mountains. There are lakes, hills, forests, fields, marshes and all kinds of coastline that play host to an exciting line-up of British wildlife such as wild animals and birds – and the good news is that much of this British wildlife easily accessible to all of us.

If you like your nature well organised, then do your homework and you’ll find a wide selection of nature reserves, world heritage sites, seabird breeding areas, natural wet grassland habitats, national parks and many other venues, where you can join a guided walk or occupy your own hide for a few hours to gaze out over a particular stretch of ground or water. So the good news is you don’t have to be a celebrity TV presenter or a tweed-wearing professor to get up close to Britain’s wildlife!

We?ve assembled a selection of venues where you stand a really good chance of observing animals, birds and sea creatures. Remember, these are wild animals we’re talking about, so they won’t be performing to order. Sometimes you’ll be sure to get a really good sighting while occasionally there may be less to see, perhaps because of the weather, the time of day or simply bad luck.
