Calendar provides a seasonal look at the very best of what the UK countryside
has to offer - from mountains, woodlands and islands to estuaries, city parks
and coastal areas.

variety of habitats, offering a user-friendly guide to getting out and about and
enjoying them at this time of year.
This will be followed by three more
