Spring has arrived and with it comes the improving weather and the easter bank holiday weekend to get out and enjoy it! Of course, in the UK we are not likely to be guaranteed sunshine and blue skies, and as spring is typically changeable, having the potential to bring snow and ice, as well as rain and wind, it is always worth making sure that you have all the right clothing ready for your spring walks, from warm sweaters like these fisherman sweaters for men https://www.shamrockgift.com/aran-sweaters/mens-aran-sweaters/ to a pair of wellies to keep your feet warm and dry.
However, don’t let the weather put you off – at this time of the year, the countryside is waking up after the winter sleep and there are plenty of things that you might be lucky enough to see if you go out for a walk. Here are some of the things to look out for in the countryside this spring…
Flowers are bursting back into life and now is the time to look out for that favourite spring flower – the daffodil. There are lots of places that you can go to see them in full bloom, from woodlands like Betty Dawes in Gloucestershire, to National Trust sites around the UK.
Life on the river is also getting back into action, and now you can take a walk along the riverside and see if you can see any of the birds that inhabit the waterways – from dippers to goosanders, as well as the beautiful kingfisher, the riverbank is a hive of activity in the springtime.
