A spotter’s guide to waterway wildlife

We've put together a spotters' guide to what you might find on, in and by the water. Why not take a trip to your nearest waterway and see how many different species you can spot?

Our waterways are a great way to unwind and get back to nature. No matter where you visit us, inner city or rural countryside you’ll be surrounded by flora and fauna.

From tiny insects to mighty oak trees, come and see what our wildlife-rich waterways have to offer.

If you spot something exciting or unusual on your next visit then take a pic and share it with us on Twitter. We love to see what you’ve been spotting.
