Signs of Winter

Many think winter is a quiet time for wildlife with not much to discover but there is actually plenty to see if you know where to look!

The arrival of winter sees flocks of fieldfares and redwings return to the UK. A good place to spot these birds is hedgerows as they go in search of tasty berries. 

Many mammals such as bats or dormice will be hibernating during the winter but snowfall can often lead to encounters with badgers and squirrels as they go in search of food and of course winter is a great time to spot foxes that don't hibernate!

Although there isn't much light around in the winter and the days seem shorter, getting that daily dose of nature is really important this time of year and as much as we also need wildlife to lift our spirits it needs us more than ever during the colder months too - why not try creating a bird feeder at home - there are lots of ideas of how to support wildlife at home via our Get Wild at Home experience.

We've picked some winter highlights to look out for below!
