England - Nature and Wildlife
In regards to nature, what England lacks in large mammals, it more than makes up for in stunning scenery and landscapes. The largest mammals found in England are the red deer and the indigenous roe deer. Smaller mammals like hedgehogs, moles, hares, badgers and otters are very common. As an island nation, the waters around England are teeming with marine life including dolphins and orcas, depending on the time of year.
There are ten national parks in England that provide conservation for many different landscapes across the country. Lake District National Park, designated in May 1951 is the second largest national park in Britain and is the most visited. The park hosts Scafell Pike, the highest mountain in England and Wast Water Lake, the deepest lake in Britain. The mountains, known locally as “fells” are popular amongst hill walkers and nature lovers. The area contains a vast history and a rich literary past that includes the likes of William Wordsworth, Beatrix Potter, Alfred Wainwright and more.
