Has anybody else noticed this the past few years despite putting up bird feeders, nest boxes etc? I used to see lots of blue tits, great tits, nuthatch, finches etc in my town and now there are only blackbirds, magpies, crows, doves and woodpigeons and even these are getting scarce. There are barely any hedgehogs, but loads of foxes. I recently found an underweight hedgehog so we are fattening him up for release next year. But its brought to my attention that there is a lot less wildlife in my area. A hell of a lot! I'm finding it really rather concerning and thinking about all the concrete and gravel gardens that lots of my locals have for convenience. Concrete and gravel provide no food, water or shelter for wildlife. Theres also a lot of fences and walls which would be difficult to navigate by anything other than the birds, foxes and cats. Maybe the houses need to be built further apart to produce "Wild areas" in between them. The hedgehog I found was local and malnourished and the only one I've seen in all my nights the past two years walking the dogs. I've been feeding him for a while, here is a photo: I don't think our governments environmental plans are working fast enough. There has been such a dramatic decline in wildlife in my area the past few years, everything from bees to birds and I'm suddenly finding it very troubling. I never noticed before. How is your wildlife doing? Have you noticed anything?
