New Springwatch presenter Martin Hughes-Games is on a mission to get people closer to nature on their holidays. With the credit crunch making more and more people consider a holiday in the UK, Martin presents an essential guide to the wilder side of holiday-making. Whether it's trips to the seaside, heading for the hills, woods and rivers, going camping or staying home in the garden or around the city, Martin and friends offer tips on wildlife-watching during the one time of year many people have the time to really enjoy it.

Martin travels to some favourite UK holiday spots to discover how to give them a wild twist. Wherever the destination, there is always wildlife close by. Martin meets local experts and reveals unsuspected wildlife gems. He finds that getting closer to nature is easier than it may seem - it can also be great fun, and doesn't cost the earth. From wild spectacles, to quick and simple things to try out with the family, the UK's amazing wildlife can help spice up any holiday.
