Love them or loathe them, squirrels are a part of many people’s gardens.
With short days, long nights and colder weather venturing outside can be daunting at this time of year. However, mother nature’s prepared some fantastic wild spectacles especially for the season, so wrap up warm and use our guide to help make the most of them.
On Sunday the 22nd November it’s tradition to ‘stir up’ the ingredients for a Christmas pudding - the premise being that, families gather together in the kitchen and make a wish for the year ahead as they each take in turn to stir the mixture.
Bill Oddie has been quoted as saying our British Dormouse is his favourite animal. Vulnerable and rare are two words that describe this cute favourite, although efforts are now focusing on protecting the 10,000 or so dormice that survive, mainly in the southern counties of England.
So what’s my favourite bird? The swallow. Always has been and I suspect it always will be. They look good at a distance – sleek, streamlined miniature jet planes – and they look good close up –a charming red bib, eyes as big and dark as a baby seals, a beak set in a permanently benign smile, and a cheery jumble of a song that is the very definition of the word “twitter”. But it’s not how they sound or look, it’s what they do.
