Spring wildlife in Buttermere Valley

A bright blue sky, a fresh breeze and sunlight making the new leaves shine like green gems. When Spring arrives in the Buttermere Valley it brings a real feeling of change to the landscape (even though the tops might have a dusting of snow well into April).

Spring is a great time for wildlife watching in the valley. Nesting birds are active to the point of being frantic, providing food for their demanding young.

Watch the ones captured on camera by volunteer Jim Bebbington in the video above.

" Where else do you get the wonderful scenery, the variety of wildlife and ease of access as in the Lake District?"
