We’d also love to hear from you with your hints & tips for wildlife spotting.
From the practical – take a waterproof and a nice flask of tea.
To the precise – if you suddenly and randomly see lots of birds fly away from a river, then it might be because there’s an otter nearby!
Last of all here are some useful links to get you started:
