And at almost any time of the year you might spot Golden Eagles and Sea Eagles . . . can you tell them apart?

And of course you have every chance of seeing Otters fishing and playing . . . so long as you quietly keep your distance!


There are many more species, but we are not going to spoil your surprise by listing them all here . . . although if you don’t see any of those we have mentioned, remember; they probably saw you!
