Winter wildlife on the Skyline

Winter is often thought of as a quiet time for wildlife, as creatures hibernate or migrate for the winter. There's still plenty of wildlife to spot if you know where to look.

Deep in the earth of the Skyline, badgers are sleeping, squirrels snoozing and hedgehogs are taking a nap. However, there are still plenty of animals scurrying about, keeping busy and warm. 

If you stay still enough you may be luck to spot:



Winter birds, keep an eye out for Christmassy robins.

Although they've gone to sleep, you will still see the strange lumps of yellow meadow ants across the Skyline.
