Welcome to friends of Ecological Owlthorpe

Public Inquiry Information supporting Ecological Owlthorpe as an upstream nature based solution protecting the environment from downstream flooding.

Mammals

There are many mammals living in Ecological Owlthorpe although we do not see as many as we used to. Badgers are no longer seen in the numbers that used to roam the woodlands but they have been seen recently in Owlthorpe Wild Orchard and Owlthorpe Fields which is still their natural habitat. Foxes, Squirells and Hedgehogs are regular visitors and sometimes can be seen in residential gardens looking for food. Weasels were also spotted recently crossing the road outside the Medical Centre. Mice, Rats and Rabbits are quite timid and not so easy to spot but they also call Ecological Owlthorpe their home. Just a few sampe photos of mammals you may see in Ecological Owlthorpe.
