Winter is a time for rest and recovery for much of our wildlife but if you look carefully there is still plenty to enjoy. Look out for migratory birds which specialise in finding food during our mild winters. Winter is also a chance to enjoy the form of deciduous trees and the squirrels that hide in them.
Cumbria has an array of birds that live here all year round, pass through on their migratory routes, breed or over-winter on our shores.
As we head into autumn, mushrooms and toadstools become a common sight. From colourful cups and clubs to bountiful brackets, fungi comes in many shapes and sizes and are a delight to spot on autumn walks
Whether you're into birds or fungi there's a special place out there for you. We recommend some of the best places Cumbria and the Lake District has to offer, whatever wildlife takes your fancy.
Great places to see...
