FACT FRIDAY WEEK 4
October is the peak month of red deer rutting in the UK - a spectacular show where male deer (stags) clash their antlers together in feisty battle to win the chance to mate with females.
FACT FRIDAY WEEK 3
The fluffy bumblebee is a familiar and much loved sight in our gardens, parks and wild spaces! They are brilliant pollinators, and love plants such as lavender, rosemary and white clover.
FACT FRIDAY WEEK 2
This week we're taking a look at one of our more common and misunderstood species here in the UK: the Fox (Vulpes vulpes). As well as being the UK's only wild member of the dog family, foxes are incredibly clever, adaptable and adorable!
FACT FRIDAY WEEK 1
Long-tailed Tits are some of the most charismatic birds we have in the UK. They are small birds that flit around from branch to branch in flocks, and are easily recognisable by their super long tails and slight pinkish colouring.
