The Natural World at Blackpool

Large numbers of butterflies at Stanley Park, or the first daffs in your back garden, this is where you'll find out about the natural world where you live.

The natural world is all around us, everyday. Whether it’s the starlings pecking for sausage roll crumbs on the high street, or a wild plant growing out of a gutter on the roof of a building, each day there are examples of nature that each of us passes by, often without noticing.

The plants coming up and flowering in the beds against our main roads, the herons nesting at Stanley Park, and bats flying around at Salisbury Woodlands - or maybe it's just something small but amazing in your back garden.

From the small but amazing through to the obvious and dramatic, Blackpool is lucky enough to host some jaw-dropping examples of the natural world at it's best. Plus, don't forget the stunning view of the sea that changes every day.

In this section you’ll find a mixed bag of things to do with the wildlife at Blackpool. So from the tame seagulls that live hand-in-hand with residents, to a possible repeat of the majestic sunsets caused by the Icelandic volcano dust cloud in 2011, this is where they will be.

If you want to share a sighting of something that made your day - however huge or small an event it is - then please send your photos (jpegs) and stories to share through this section.
