Welcome to Wild In Britain, an occasional and irregular photo journal of my encounters with all types of wildlife in the British Isles.

A Red Fox, photographed in the Forest of Dean, my local area. Spring is finally here, despite the snow, hail and rain that's falled today. Migrants are returning, butterflies emerging. I'm looking forward to catching up with a couple of butterfly species this year that have so far eluded me, and there are a couple of other species I'm hoping to target this spring/summer, but other than those it will be a case of seeing what opportunities arise.
