Twelve months of cuteness! Countryfile 2019 calendar reveals the most adorable animals to be seen in Britain – as voted for by presenters

  • Animals featured include polecats in East Budleigh, Devon and a Highland herd in Buttermere, Lake District
  • Last year’s calendar raised £2.1 million for Children In Need and it’s hoped this year manage to do similar 
  • The 2019 Countryfile calendar costs £9.50, with a minimum of £4.50 from each going to Children In Need

They’re photographs so glorious they make the heart soar — and the magnificent animals and landscapes in them are the stars of BBC Countryfile’s 2019 calendar. 

Last year’s calendar raised a huge £2.1 million for Children In Need and it’s hoped this year’s crop of pictures — themed as ‘seasons in the sun’ and selected from 40,000 entries by judges John Craven, Cerys Matthews and Simon King — could beat that. What better way to mark the coming months?
