Sally Pepper seeks out wildlife in the East Midlands


Sally's first trek takes her in search of mountain hares in Peak District

East Midlands Today's weather presenter Sally Pepper leaves her weather maps behind as she goes in search of the wildlife on your doorstep.

Each month she will bring you amazing wildlife news, information and pictures from around the region with the help of local experts, including Tim Sexton (Attenborough Nature Reserve), top UK wildlife photographer Paul Hobson and Tim Appleton (Rutland Water Nature Reserve).

If you have spotted any unusual visitors in your local park, back garden or even in your city centre then show us your pictures.

Your pictures could feature on East Midlands Today and may be included in our online galleries.
