The moorland and woodland at Lyme are home to many animals from magnificent red deer to a variety of birds. Look out for redstarts and pied flycatchers nesting in the wood. You can learn more about the birds at Lyme on a Dawn Chorus walk with our rangers too.
As spring arrives the deer at Dunham Massey start to drop their antlers. If you're eagle-eyed and very lucky you may just stumble across some antlers in the grass (which you can keep). And it's not just the deer you'll spot; our resident swans come back to the ponds at this time of year too.
The ponds in the wooded garden at Hare Hill are busy places, providing a home for rare wetland wildlife. Keep your eyes peeled for dragonflies, damselflies and you might just spot a heron watching what's going on below the surface.
Take in impressive views and see the sun peeking through the trees as the leaves return after winter. Keep your eyes peeled for birds and spring flowers on a walk at Alderley Edge. Redstart, nuthatch, flycatcher and tree creeper are just a few of the woodland birds that you'll hopefully be able to spot.
On the hunt for a red squirrel, daffodil, bluebell, or simply just to enjoy the birdsong that surrounds us in the spring? The Lake District is waking up after the winter and as the days get longer and warmer, it's the perfect season to step outside.
