Sensational summer wildlife

The summer brings with it a host of amazing opportunities to get close to the incredible wild neighbours on your doorstep. Enjoy the spectacular summer visitors such as osprey and basking sharks that arrive to the UK each year or perhaps simply sit back and enjoy our beautiful butterflies flitting around. Explore the miniature world of rockpools or just watch the drama of garden birds fledge and grow up in your local park.

The BBC's Summer of Wildlife website has all sorts of useful and interesting articles such as what to feed wildlife; where to see summer meadows; top tips for improving your wildlife photography; ideas for wildlife holidays and much more.
