The latest leaflet in English Nature's garden wildlife series is a guide to the mammals that inhabit our gardens.
Produced with The Mammal Society and Mammals Trust UK, the illustrated guide has tips on attracting more mammals to your garden and deterring less welcome visitors. Steve Berry of English Nature
, who edits the organisation's series of wildlife gardening leaflets, said: 'There are around 16 million gardens in Britain and together they cover a bigger area than all the country's nature reserves combined. Almost all gardens, including those in the heart of any city, will receive at least occasional visits from some mammals and they are vital habitats to some declining species, like hedgehogs. By following some of the suggestions in the new leaflet people can make a real difference to the fortunes of our mammal species'.
