Mammals to look out for in your garden

Who's been visiting your garden?

You might think that the neighbour's cat is the only animal to visit your back garden, but you'd be surprised at the number of species that show up at night when you are fast asleep!

Some are well known to everyone, others might be more surprising. If you live near a park, woodland or nature reserve, who knows what animals might wander into your garden to explore.

Rarer visitors

The below species have also been recorded in gardens in Shropshire. You are much less likely to see them unless your garden opens onto fields or woodlands, but it is always worth keeping an eye out!
