More Log Cabins Articles A new study has revealed the diverse wildlife living in people's back gardens.
The Cardiff Garden Wildlife Survey found that bats, newts, lizards and slow worms were among the more exotic species to be found in gardens across the city, Wales Online reported.
According to the news website, conservationists have been encouraged by the findings and are now in talks with Cardiff council to help create more wildlife-friendly habitats.
A cosy garden building such as a log cabin or summer house could provide an ideal spot for observing garden wildlife. The survey was produced after the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales asked the public to fill in a form documenting the creatures they had spotted in their gardens.
"There is the tendency to overlook the incredible wildlife on our doorstep – often in the most urban of settings," commented Robert Parry, the trust’s conservation manager.
"Our gardens take on a greater significance for wildlife, acting as miniature nature reserves for a wide variety of plants and animals," he added.
