A few of the species you might see trotting, flying and scampering alongside you on your walk
Deer From red to roe, fallow to muntjac, especially during the autumn rut.
Wild ponies Both Dartmoor in Devon, and the Carneddau in North Wales are home to wild breeds.
Birds of prey Thermals are common near small hills, making sightings of the native species that soar on them, such as buzzard, hen harrier and peregrine falcon, a possibility; you can find out more about this at rspb.org.uk.
Wild cats Very hard to see but possible, especially in Scotland.
Butterflies Found all over the UK, from red admirals to dark green fritillaries.
