Nature's Calendar - the book

Read all about it...


The new book to accompany the BBC Two TV series, Nature's Calendar, is available from 19th February 2007.

Why not get yourself out and about with a copy in your ruck sack? It could be the start of a great adventure...

The book of the series - out now

Marsh Marigold c/o Natural EnglandHave you ever wanted to observe otters during daylight hours or to get up close to a normally shy Black- tailed Godwit or see reindeer in the wild without having to travel thousands of miles?

It's a myth that you have to be an expert to watch wildlife - you just need to know the best places and the best time of year to look.

From the volcanic moorlands of Lundy Island, to the arctic mountains of the Cairngorms and verdant Lee Valley, Britain is a wildlife-lover's paradise.

Nature's Calendar is a practical, month-by-month guide to the very best wildlife locations across the whole of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Presenters Chris Packham, Mike Dilger, Sanjida O'Connell and Janet Sumner present their top ten locations for each month and give you their personal highlights to inspire you to make the most of the wildlife on your doorstep.

Seasonal celebration

DaffodilsA celebration of our unique countryside, rich habitats and extraordinary diversity of species, Nature's Calendar covers woodland, rivers, hills, grassland, seashore and wetlands and the interesting animals, birds, trees and flowers you are likely to see.

Each location contains visitor information, opening times, entry cost and how to get there, along with animal and plant profiles.

TV images of glamorous animals in exotic locations are often so overwhelming that we forget that we have an abundance of beautiful wildlife so close to home.

Nature's Calendar will exercise your curiosity and enable you to discover a magical world you may not even have known existed.
