Winter Garden Wildlife

Since only three of the U.K.’s wildlife species hibernate, your garden may get a lot busier than you expect during winter.


This is because many animals naturally adapt to the drop in temperatures with fluffier coats or a new colour, so try leaving out a little food and a saucer of regularly topped-up water to encourage them in.

Some of the species of wildlife that may pass through your garden are:

  • Red Squirrels
  • Grey Squirrels
  • Rabbits
  • Hedgehogs
  • Foxes
  • Frogs
  • Badgers
  • Dormice
  • Bats
  • Grass snakes
