Walking enthusiasts 'can witness revival of British wildlife'

People who put on the latest walking gear and head out into the British countryside will be well placed to witness what one newspaper is describing as a revival of the nation's wildlife.

The Independent explains the return of traditional seasons is behind the resurgence in many of the country's most popular species.

It notes 2010 has been a year featuring a cold winter, reasonably hot summer and a late spring – all of which are typical of the UK in years gone by.

Matthew Oates, nature conservation advisor at the National Trust, tells the newspaper: "For the first time in a generation we have experienced a traditional year of weather and our wildlife has mostly responded favourably."

A cold winter is key for many creatures, as it allows them to hibernate effectively and prepare well for the year ahead.

Britain has more than a dozen national parks, with the largest being Cairngorms in Scotland and the most popular remaining the Peak District, which welcomes in excess of ten million people a year.ADNFCR-2803-ID-800319495-ADNFCR
