Welcome to the World of Garden Wildlife!

LadybirdThere’s much greater awareness of garden wildlife today - not just birds, but a whole host of other creatures including hedgehogs, frogs, newts, toads, bees, ladybirds and butterflies. This list just helps to confirm the importance of gardens as reservoirs for a whole host of species. It is relatively easy these days to create suitable habitats to attract such creatures to a garden setting, and create an environment where they can flourish.

You do not even need to live in a home with a garden either, to be able to watch birds out of your window. You can now obtain special feeders which attach safely outside, attracting birds to feed here. This can be vital source of both food and water, during harsh weather, or when they are breeding. Even the right plants in a window box can provide nectar for insects such as butterflies, and there is an increasing trend in some areas to keep bee hives on the roofs of city buildings, especially where there are parks in the vicinity.

There are plenty of tips in this section of the site to help you ensure that local wildlife can benefit from your care, throughout the year, with similar guidelines applying wherever you are in the world, even if you are not based in the UK.
