Just because the weather is getting chillier doesn’t mean that you can’t get out and about in the great outdoors! With practical and cosy winter clothing like walking boots, waterproof coats and warm jumpers like this womens merino wool sweater https://www.shamrockgift.com/aran-sweaters/womens-aran-sweaters/womens-merino-wool-irish-sweater , you can still go out and enjoy all of the beauty of nature.
In fact, the autumn and the winter are great times to get out into nature, as there are some of the most beautiful sights to see on these chilly and wet days…
In mid October to early November wait for a lot of rain to rise the water levels of the rivers. This is when the salmon will begin their awe inspiring journey from the Atlantic ocean where they have been since they first travelled from their birthplace, and they head back to where they were born to spawn. These amazing fish are able to leap up waterfalls and over rocks in their determination to get back and it is really something special to watch.
The bare trees in the winter woodland mean that spotting birds is much easier. From the smaller birds like finches who are busy searching for food to keep them going through the winter, to woodpeckers and even large birds like Goshawks, keep an eye on the trees in the winter.
With the evenings drawing in, this is also a great opportunity to take a walk at dusk and look for the crepuscular and nocturnal animals of the countryside. From badgers to hedgehogs to otters, keep your eyes peeled!
