Despite the hustle and bustle of the capital, London can be a great place to watch wildlife.

The city has the largest urban park in the UK - Lee Valley Park which lies just 20 minutes out of town. Lee Valley is the place to see some of the country's most elusive and impressive wildlife.

"The green spaces within our towns and cities are becoming increasingly important habitats for wildlife.

"With much of the countryside turned over to intensive farming, it's often the humble local park that provides vital food and shelter for animals in winter."
