just goes to show that they will survive in urban areas – as long as people don’t fuss over their gardens to perfection too much.
we also dont have a huge garden – but we do back onto a small wooded area – and we leave gaps under the fences and leave areas of the garden, behind the shed etc – to go pretty much untouched – which seems to encourage them in to the food and water we leave them. we have also overwintered and support released quite a few over the years – and many return for food top ups on and off. This year I tackled the neighbours to support their numbers, showing them what to do etc, and so there are a number of gardens now on our estate with shabby areas and feeding stations set up. Fingers crossed that a joint effort will see an increase in the surviving population we have.
