Leicestershire County Council and NatureSpot have teamed up to develop this series of identification guides to local wildlife. The species featured are all relatively common and easily identified.
If you have seen a species not featured on one of these guides then visit the NatureSpot galleries to see images of nearly all Leicestershire and Rutland wildlife.
You can download and print the guides if you wish but the links in the documents will of course only work when viewing them online.
