With frosty mornings upon us, shelter is the name of the game for wildlife, whether overnight cover for birds or overwintering spots for insects and amphibians. Take a look around your garden and see where to add more creature features to help them through the cold season. Natural options make a difference too, like thick shrubs or warm compost heaps.
