The International Dark Sky Park in Kielder Forest is England’s premier venue for stargazing, a pitch-black nothingness in which the Milky Way sparkles and shines. Jonathan Manning and his daughter head to Northumberland to check it out.
Cardigan Bay in west Wales is one of the best places in the UK to spot dolphins. Andrew Ditton joins a special boat trip from New Quay near our Shawsmead Club site and is thrilled by the experience of getting up close and personal with such fascinating and playful sea creatures.
Andrew Ditton admits his ignorance of all things feathered has prevented him from visiting RSPB reserves on more than one occasion. To put things right he attended a 90-minute guided walk at Bempton Cliffs where he was dazzled by fascinating facts and entranced by puffins and gannets.
