This month, CJ Wildlife – Europe’s leading garden wildlife specialist and Froglife partner are reminding us that all of our gardens, no matter what size, can become bustling nature reserves for our local wildlife, so the more species you can cater for – from the smallest insect to the largest toad – the more alive your garden will become this spring.
We’re now in the last full month of winter and, whatever February throws at us, spring isn’t too far away. Hedgehogs and bats should still be hibernating, but the first squirrel litters are likely to be born anytime and, by the end of the month, an increasing number of ponds will have frog spawn.
Birds will be looking for nesting territories, which makes February the ideal month to put up a new nest box and keeping feeders topped up will ensure birds know they can rely on your garden for a reliable source of food, vital when choosing somewhere to raise their young.
