Wildlife spotting with Chris Packham

Apr 21, 2017


Our wildlife guides have been compiled with the help of wildlife expert, Chris Packham, to help you become more familiar with the abundance of wildlife there is dwelling in your local forests! They highlight some of the magnificent animals and creatures that can be found throughout the spring and summer in some of the UK’s most beautiful and vast forests, including the Forest of Dean, New Forest, Savernake Forest, Snowdonia, Aviemore and Trossachs.

Chris Packham, wildlife expert says: "The UK is a haven for incredible wildlife, much of which can be found in our own back gardens. But to really submerse yourself in it, you need to get out into the countryside and explore.

Let 2017 be the year that we put down the technology and get back in touch with nature in the great outdoors. Here are a few of my favourite wildlife species which can be found at various forest locations across the UK at different times of year. I hope you enjoy spotting them as much as I do."
