Wildlife survey reveals surprises

Hedgehog
Hedgehogs were regularly seen in the gardens surveyed

A wildlife survey has revealed a "surprising" variety of animal life in gardens in Oxfordshire.

The RSPB charity commissioned the survey which saw 629 householders monitor wildlife in their gardens.

The results suggested one in five gardens were home to foxes and hedgehogs, while badgers were recorded by almost 5% of participants.

Louise Pedersen, from the RSPB said: "People are regularly seeing foxes, hedgehogs, and badgers."
