I think alot of the disapearing wildlife is due to the way we are living our lives.Roof extentions are everywhere as are gravel and bricked over front gardens where no hedgehog can live or birds in the cold sterile surroundings.I like tidy garden but to have one perfect and no wild over patches is a bad thing for wildlife,along with our interferences with the natures chain.

Talkback: Holes in leaves

I have holes in my fence where the badger has come to look for food.Holes in the leafs ? are you sure its not those tiny munchers baby snails or those leafcutters.Alot of plants have been affected by the cold wind more than the cold its self.
