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.
