Just wondering what kinds of wildlife you get to see in and around your gardens.

We’re pretty lucky, seeing plenty of badgers, foxes, deer, woodpeckers, all manner of normal garden birds, and several newts and frogs in the pond. However, despite best endeavours, we’ve never been able to attract any hedgehogs in.

No hedgehogs either. We’ve got loads of pheasants, resident mallards and moorhens on the pond, rabbits, birds (robins, woodpeckers, buzzards, herons) and foxes. Thankfully no deer that would destroy our young trees and veg garden.

To be frank, the foxes are the biggest problem, so we’ve wrapped the chicken run in significant amounts of electric fencing. All the other wildlife is welcome.
