Make Your Nature Count

September 2009. You’re more likely to see a fox in London than you will in the countryside. That’s the finding of the RSPB’s first ever spring survey, Make Your Nature Count.

More than 62,000 people took part in the new wildlife stock-take. Participants were asked to note the birds as well as other garden visitors, such as squirrels, frogs and toads.

Pigeons are most common – Cats in 86% of gardens

In London pigeons are the most common garden visitors, followed by blackbirds and robins. Traditionally, house sparrows and starlings were the top two most common species, but, worryingly, they’ve slipped to seventh and eighth places respectively. Cats were recorded in 86% of the gardens surveyed, almost equalled by the number of squirrels. Foxes were third placed, appearing in 70 per cent of gardens.

Global warming will threaten the capital’s wildlife habitats by increasing the risk of flooding in the winter and drought in the summer, the London Climate Change Partnership said on Sunday: here.

Wales: Red squirrels have found their way across the Menai Strait from Anglesey to Gwynedd, conservationists believe: here.

Red squirrels are returning to areas of Scotland where they have not been seen for years, according to campaigners: here.
