Spring into nature

Spring is a great time for outdoor adventures. There are trails and events waiting for you to do, including the Spring Haiku Trail at Lyveden in Northamptonshire – just remember to pack your wellies. There are plenty of places where you could also spot delicate blossom to delight in and the chattering birds among the leaves.
