Technology is a wonderful thing. Thanks to the marvel of livestreaming, it's possible you can still watch a variety of species, including owls, seals, badgers and bats, thanks to these animal webcams.

Some of these cameras are seasonal, for example they may only be active during the nesting season. However we have decided to include them here anyway, and will endeavour to regularly update which cameras are online or offline.
