Where to go this season
In winter it may seem as if Devon’s wildlife goes to ground. But if you know where to look there’s so much to discover...
Get great views of winter wading birds from the hides at South Efford Marsh (near Kingsbridge) and Dawlish Inner Warren (near Dawlish) nature reserves.
Find the lichens as they cling to the wind-blown stone walls which stretch across Bellever Moor and Meadows (Dartmoor) nature reserve.
Search along the strandline for shells, seaweed, mermaid’s purses (shark/ray egg cases) and cuttlefish bones close to Wembury Marine Centre (near Plymouth).
Other wild places to go this winter
Crunch frosted leaves beneath your feet on a brisk winter’s walk through our Dunsford nature reserve (near Exeter).
