Raider's of the Goldfish Pound

The Grey Heron can often be seen if you walk along the quite streches of the Grand Union Canal in West London as they stand patiently waiting for he's dinner to swim along,but they can often find a easy meal in garden goldfish ponds.

We are not alone

Many people going about there everyday business in London's hustle and bustle fail to notice the wildlife that share our capital city with us, the gray squirrel as become a very familiar site,not a native of the Britain, these creatures are native to the hardwood forests of the eastern United States and was introduced to this country in the mid-19th century, but did not realy become established in the wild until about the the turn of the century, after many releases,
Unfortunately these animals have tended to become a pest with gardeners and for the raids on bird tables and feeders.
