There's nothing more enthralling than watching wildlife happening right in front of you. With nesting season well underway a great way to do this is to view live action on a webcam. There are several wildlife groups with webcams set up on their reserves and live streaming for you to watch.

Don't disturb nesting birds - you may be keen to see the eggs or young birds but parents can abandon their nests if disturbed. Stay well clear and keep animals and children away.
There will be plenty of young birds around at the moment but don't immediately assume they've been abandoned.
If you find a baby bird and it's feathered and uninjured - leave it alone. It's parents are probably nearby and will not come near while you are there.
If it's on the ground and in immediate danger from cats or a road - place it in a nearby bush or tree.
If it's a young chick, you might be able to find the nest (probably above where you found it) and replace the bird in the nest and move well away.
