Fox
In recent years foxes have become very common in urban areas.
I "caught" this one basking in the middle of our lawn.
Friesian cattle are a common sight in the English countryside. Friesians are a diary breed but may also be grown for beef. Fallow deer the most common type in UK parks, can be found in every county in England. Badgers are shy creatures and not very often seen. They live in large underground burrows called setts. Each sett will have many openings which are kept clean. In this photograph of a sett in woodland on the North Downs in Surrey you can see the pile of earth and chalk fragments that the badgers have excavated.

The grey squirrel is a favourite with children but a pest in real life, since squirrels cause damage to trees and lawns (and it's not a good idea to park beneath a tree that squirrels live in!)
Animals such as squirrels, which collect and bury seeds and nuts are important agents of seed dispersal. The squirrel uses its long bushy tail to help balance when jumping from branch to branch.

Insects

Comma Butterfly feeding on buddleia, which is often known as "Butterfly Bush".
Both butterflies and moths belong to the insect order called Lepidoptera.
Red Admiral butterfly. Both of these photos clearly show the "knobbed" antennae which are a feature of the Papilionoidae the group within the Lepidoptera to which butterflies (but not moths) belong This photo of a moth which settled on our lounge ceiling one evening clearly shows that its antennae do not end in "knobs" like those of a butterfly. A honeybee worker feeding on the flower of a marguerite. Honeybees belong to the insect order Hymenoptera (which means "membrane winged"). This group includes the bees, wasps and ants. Most of the members of this group are social insects which live in colonies controlled by one or more queens. Worker bees are sterile females. A bumble bee feeding on, and pollinating, a hollyhock flower. You can clearly see the pollen grains stuck to the bee's body.
