What garden wildlife is doing now

Find out what garden wildlife is up to in March

By March, the days are longer, the birdsong is louder, and there’s a good chance there’s some frogspawn – or even toadspawn – in your pond. Gradually the garden grows more colourful as leaves and flowers burst from their buds, and the hum of bees becomes steadier as the first bumblebees are joined by honeybees and solitary mining and flower bees.

It feels good, doesn’t it? Continue keeping an eye out for hedgehogs and leave food out for them as well as hungry birds. It’s still a few weeks to breeding season and natural sources of food are dangerously low.
