Crop-laden fields alive with the sounds of skylarks rising above the ground, hedgerows bursting with flowers and the noise of birdsong.
You could see weasels scampering around stone walls, damselflies flitting along ditches or brown hares leaping about in the fields. Come winter, you might see foxes loping across the path in front of you or golden plovers congregating in great flocks.
Some of the most special farmland bird sounds are the wild squeals made by displaying lapwings. These bold black-and-white wading birds plunge, twist and swoop in the air while emitting strange, strange sounds...
Skylarks are justly famous for their skilful songs, but what about watching a barn owl float along a hedgerow or across a field, before stopping to hover and dive onto prey? Or swallows whizzing across a field and up into a barn with a beak full of flies? You can't fail to admire yellow wagtails scampering amongst the hooves of cattle as they grab insects.
'Boxing' brown hares are famous for their displays in March, but what's going on? It's females trying to avoid the attentions of males, seeing them off with a swipe of the paw.
In the heat of summer, butterflies brighten farmland as they seek out nectar from plants of all shapes and sizes. Deer trot gracefully away into the distances as stately oaks and ashes stand tall in the hedgerows, providing thousands of creatures with food and homes.
