Wildlife and nature surround us and can make any travel a memorable experience. From our own back gardens to the most remote areas, wildlife is there to be found if you know where to look.
Continue reading to discover some of the wildlife that you can see as you travel from home, how to interact without disturbing the habitat and how to take photographs to make your memories last.
While every wildlife encounter is unique, it helps if you get yourself into the right place at the right time. Planning is essential from being on the bird cliffs at the right time of the year, to knowing the location where deer will feed during the winter months in Scotland.

Just remember that you are not going to find Atlantic puffins in Iceland or Scotland during the winter months and cherry blossom and bluebell woods are somewhere to visit in the spring.
