British Biodiversity

2010 is International Year of Biodiversity and we at Nature Live want to highlight the biodiversity that can be found all around us in the UK, from your back garden to your local park or woodland.

 

If you have found an interesting species, or just one that you love, tell us about it here, and where you encountered it. Even better, take a photo and share it here.

 

This discussion is related to our event on 28 February, Lots of Life in London (and repeated on 28 March), about the biodiversity that can be found in London. See: http://www.nhm.ac.uk/visit-us/whats-on/events/programs/naturelive/lots_of_life_in_london.html?date=11.01.2010

    Re: British Biodiversity
    Leaving a bit of wild space at the bottom of my garden a few years back seemed like a small and easy thing to do to promote backyard biodiversity. A small pond was added in the hope of seeing some vertebrates (other than the rodents I wasn't so convinced by - sorry). Of course we were delighted with the insects and birds but this autumn saw the arrival of a pair of foxes that have shifted at least a tonne of soil to build their earth. I am currently adopting a laissez faire attitude - is this wrong? If they mate we might have pups and protective parents in the spring - as a protective parent myself should I worry? Will they take over the whole garden? Should I try to get rid of them or assume innocence until proven guilty?
