Wildlife and Nature

Wiltshire is famous for the Great Bustard – a bird recently reintroduced to Salisbury Plain.

There are plenty of opportunities to see wildlife, whether in a forest, nature reserve or town park but you can also visit Wiltshire’s animal parks.

In spring you can see lovely carpets of bluebells if you know where to look.
