There is an amazing amount of wild life in the urban garden from foxes - which seem to feel more at home in the town and city gardens nowadays, hedgehogs, toads, garden mice, squirrels, insects - such as moths, dragon flies, birds and the odd reports of bats at night in certain areas. A great deal of this wildlife sees the common garden shed as an asset to its well being. Hedgehogs in particular like to make homes under the garden shed where it can shelter away from the weather. Mice again like sheds for the same reason.
I often see foxes in my garden at night where the security lights come on but I'm puzzled as to where they are during the day. There is space behind my large wooden shed which is a glorified hidey hole but here are no signs that they live there. My wife has a potting shed raised on bearers but again no sign of anything there either. This is a bit of a mystery as every night they make an appearance. I've never seen any bats in my garden but there has been the usual insects, dragon flies and may bugs, which my wife detests.
It's really rather nice in a way to have this wildlife, I think, with them living together with us humans. I probably would not be so keen it is was bears, snakes or wolves which other countries have. On the whole I think the gardens of Britain are very special places and are enjoyed by most of the population.
However, in the last few years the number of garden wildlife have not done so well and have become more of a rarer sight a recent poll suggested. In this poll from more than 2000 people it found that where the population of butterflies, bees and moths had, in fact, actually increased in our gardens - frogs, toads and hedgehogs are more likely not to be seen by gardeners, even if you hide quietly in your garden shed hoping for a glimpse. The good news is, for people that like wild life in their garden, is that there has been an increase in nearly a quarter of all gardens.
Apparently, frogs and toads also like to make their homes under the garden shed, which I didn't know, however gardeners are known to be discouraging them. I know my wife don't like these creatures and she would want be to serve notice on them if any were found lurking under HER shed.
It is recommended that if gardeners could offer these creatures an alternative to the garden shed such as leaving piles of logs in secluded places or allowing parts of your garden to be left undisturbed then wildlife could flourish alongside us humans. This can be a 'win win' situation as this wildlife works together to provide a sound ecosystem and are part of the food chain.
