The mild winter weather is helping British wildlife according to the natural tv presenter Iolo Williams.
It is thought that wild animals, such as Foxes, squirrels, mice, and so on, are benefiting from the mild winter weather. This is because the wet weather is producing an abundance of food. There are more crops, acorns, and a lot of vegetation, which is helping wild animals such as rabbits.
Because there is more food available for wild plant eating animals this year, there are more plant eating animals surviving. This is in turn helping meat eating animals, such as Foxes, as there is more for them to eat, they're not going hungry.
Because there is an abundance of food, many animals, such as squirrels, are putting on weight.
However, the news is not good all round. The wet wild weather is thought to be bad for Otters. It is thought that Otters could be killed as they leave rivers, and go on land to search for food.
It is not yet clear on how the mild weather has affected animals such as Hedgehogs, which are currently in hibernation.
