As temperatures across the UK soar to record highs, heating up the countryside in the day and bringing dramatic thunderstorms at night, the owls in my garden are developing strategies to cope. So far the tawny owls are cooling off in my garden ponds, and their chicks have even adopted my daughters’ paddling pool to bathe in, but the barn owls are more unsettled – especially by the thunder.

On a trip to Anglesey a few years ago I was lucky enough to see a thriving colony of red squirrels and even to meet the head of an organisation responsible for conservation across the region: Dr Craig Shuttleworth of the Red Squirrels Trust Wales. Dr Shuttleworth gave me a leaflet about red squirrels with a map of Welsh populations and their distribution that dated back to 2000. The paper showed that this endangered species […]
