Our towns and villages can be surprisingly good places to spot wildlife. Animals like foxes and jackdaws have learnt to adapt to the busy streets and shops, where they can find easy pickings from food scraps, and where gardens and parks offer some birds and mammals, for example house sparrows and hedgehogs, just the right places in which to raise their families.
