The hot summer witnessed in the UK this year provided a springboard for wildlife species to “thrive”, says a National Trust report.
A cold spring initially hindered species such as badgers, said the report, with lower than usual quantities of worms and other food sources.
But mammals and bird species recovered across the summer. The National Trust’s Matthew Oates said: “We have seen more winners than losers in our wildlife year, which is a tremendous result considering where we were last year.”
