Following the baby-boom that has occurred throughout the animal kingdom during the spring, June is a month when numerous young animals begin to appear and venture further and further from their dens and nests. Although many youngsters can be hard to spot, wherever you are in the UK you have a good chance of spotting young fox cubs.

With the warmer summer months looming, various habitats throughout the country are abundant with life from invertebrates and fish in rock pools to the numerous sea-bird species that are nesting on the cliff tops around the coast to have better protection from predators.
