What would wildlife wish for in 2019?

Here are five wishes that some of our local wildlife might make if they had a voice. What do you think wildlife would wish for?
Redwing

Redwing by Margaret Holland

"I wish all the hedgerows would be left uncut over winter so I have lots of berries to eat to help me survive the cold."

Water vole

“I wish for more grassy banks beside canals and rivers where I can burrow to make a home and raise my family.”

Bird bath

" I wish for clean, fresh water as well as bird food in gardens this winter.” 

Dormouse

Dormouse by Zoe Helene Kindermann

“I’m wishing that lots of coppicing is carried out this winter so there will be an abundance of shoots, insects and fruits for me to feed on next year.” 

Mallard
