Kayaking is a wonderful way of bird watching and wildlife spotting. Whilst out on the water you are able to get right up close to many animals as you glide along quietly.
Here are a few of the best from this season on the water!
Dolphins on the Cornish Coast
The river Soar, a great place for wildlife spotting
Caves are another great place to spot wildlife, especially crabs, anemones and other sea creatures.
Of course, if you can't find much wildlife you can always bring some of your own 😉

Remember if you remove wildlife from the water (crabs, starfish for example), always try and put them back where you found them if you can. Starfish when left out of the water, dry up fast. If you are watching larger wildlife, take care not to disturb or anger them. Swans have been known to be fairly agressive when startled!
What is the best animal or bird you have spotted whilst out in your kayak?
