From sparrows to sparrowhawks, stag beetles to muntjac stags, Hillingdon and Uxbridge boast a huge variety of wildlife. This blog contains my own observations and I welcome any input from other nature lovers.
I had thought our visiting raven was a singleton, but a few days ago he brought his mate to the garden. I have no idea where they are nesting, but it would be wonderful to see a baby raven in the spring.
The vixen has paired off with this dog fox. Isn't he a handsome fellow? Just look at that thick brush! He made short work of the bird food, which I put on upturned tins so that the birds wouldn't have to flounder in the snow.
