The Natural Year in Focus looks at various plants, animals, insects and birds by month throughout the year.

In January to March migratory birds are seen on the beaches, harbours and canals  

In April, if you are very quiet, you may see grass snakes on warm days.  Mysterious Toothwort emerges and bee flies bask in a shaft of sunlight.
