Michaela Strachan visits the WildlifeKate Patch!

I have extremely fortunate to have appeared on Springwatch and Autumnwatch over the last two years, sharing some of the projects I have been doing here in my patch and, hopefully, inspiring  others to do a bit for wildlife in their own gardens.

This week, I was delighted to welcome the team back, this time to focus on Rats for a feature on the show in a few weeks. I have quite a few rats visiting here and love watching them… they are intelligent, acrobatic and resourceful mammals; an integral part of the ecosystem here in my garden.
