Foxes and deer stay active throughout winter and fungi, such as wood blewit, continue to appear and thrive.
With fewer leaves on the trees, birds are much easier to spot. There are plenty to see at this time of year, such as tits, finches and winter thrushes.
Should you accidentally disturb a hibernating or sleepy creature, please don’t move it. If you uncovered it, cover it back over and leave it alone to go back to sleep.
