What garden wildlife is doing now

Find out what the wildlife in your garden is up to in July.

July is a month of buzzing borders. Our gardens are lush with leaves and flowers, and the insects are making the most of them. Look out for leafhoppers and aphids, chafers and flower beetles. Try to count and identify the bees visiting your flowers.

This is also the month of newly fledged baby birds, so ensure bird feeders and baths are topped up to keep them healthy.
