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.
Keep your eyes peeled along the meandering stream at Quarry Bank for flashes of blues. Kingfishers are regularly spotted, as well of a host of woodland birds along the banks. For those more eagle-eyed, you may also be lucky enough to spot an otter.
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.
