Watching Wildlife - December

Blue Tit

At first glance the bitter month of December seems to be dull and uneventful for the amateur naturalist but, as the cold winter weather sets in there is actually a great deal going on in the wildlife world (although gloves and waterproofs are essential).

A number of our native insect species will be holding up in secure places to hibernate over the winter and the dwindling amount of small prey also gives rise to larger predators having to search further for food, so keep your eyes and ears open both in the wild and in the garden.
