Many of us will have been tuning in to BBC's Springwatch this week. Our country is full of wildlife wonders and the insights this programme gives us are fascinating.

The programme is based each year in well known nature reserves and areas of wild beauty. None of those so far has been in Northamptonshire! But, while we may not host outstanding wetland or mountain habitats, our county is, as much as any other, full of natural wonders.

Many of us already log in regularly to Facebook Groups such as Northamptonshire Nature and Landscape Photography which welcomes good pictures of wildlife anywhere in the county, including private gardens and around our towns and villages. This is probably the best place to share those photos but you don't have images but do have a relevant story to tell, by all means share it in our own Rose of the Shires Facebook Group

Other Facebook Groups worth visiting include
Northamptonshire Country Parks and Summer Leys
The Wildlife Trust

Please tell us about more Facebook Groups which focus on nature in Northamptonshire. Post a reference in our own Facebook Group or visit our Groups Page and add the details there.

There is also a website for The Wildlife Trust

The County Council's website has a whole section about Northamptonshire's Country Parks

There are so many more places for nature run by local councils and communities. Do you know about Bradlaugh Fields in Northampton? Can you tell us about other places worth a visit?

Northamptonshire has an immensely rich diversity of places and wildlife to satisfy and entertain anyone with a love of our countryside and its flora and fauna. Celebrate and Share!
