Welcome to Nature Guide UK, an illustrated guide to the wildlife of the United Kingdom. The aim of the site is to have species accounts for as many species as possible, complete with photographs illustrating the diagnostic features. Some species are not identifiable from photographs alone, but with the right shot or set of shots a surprising number of species can be identified with confidence. Clicking on the photos in the species account will take you to a flickr photo page allowing you to access high resolution images. Some photos may also have notes illustrating diagnostic features. Please note that these pages are intended as a guide, and are not a definitive identification resource.
