BIRD IDENTIFICATION
www.birdguides.com
A comprehensive guide to British Birds, including photographs and video footage.

BUTTERFLIES
http://www.butterfly-conservation.org
Great for information but is presented by species name rather than by picture, making it difficult to quickly identify something you have seen without going through the 60+ images.
http://www.southwestscotland-butterflies.org.uk
for the branch covering the SW of Scotland.

MOTHS
http://www.ukmoths.org.uk
Site run by Ian Kimber covering most UK species. Not the easiest site to just browse but an extensive collection of pictures and information.

DEER
http://www.deer-uk.com/deer.html
Fairly good site for identifying deer.

WILDFLOWERS
Botanical Society of the British Isles
http://www.botanicalkeys.co.uk
An identification guide, quite detailed. Choose the things you know about a wildflower, submit these and up comes a list of possibilities for you to try.
