The British mild and damp climate has allowed many, many different species of animals and birds to settle and evolve here that may have struggled to live elsewhere in the world. Britain is an island surrounded by seas and oceans which usually keep our summers warm and wet and our winters generally mild.
With so much choice, travellers may find easy spectacular flights to london. And make your plans ahead, so that you will not be missing out on the British Wildlife as the number one choice in your escapade plans.
Animals that settled on the British Isles learned that they could rely on food supplies being available practically all year round because of the consistent lack of extreme weather. However, when extreme weather occurs, it can cause serious problems because the ecosystem is not designed to deal with it. In recent times and because of climate change, Britain experiences more extremes which is unfortunately changing the nature of our islands animal life.
Because of climate change, animal species from other countries arrive on the islands and settle here, taking over native wildlife and forcing them into margins. New pests have arrived and have spread to parts where they were unable to thrive previously.
In this section 'British Wildlife', we will take a look at some of Britains amazing animals, their life styles and how they are affected by the ever changing climate on these islands.
Here is a list of British Wildlife featured at Animal Corner!

Did you know this about animals?
Animals populate every part of the Earth and can be found in a vast amount of various shapes, sizes and colours. The animal kingdom contains around 10 million different species that live on land, sky or in the ocean. Animals are multicellular organisms which means they are made up of more than one cell. Some animals can be tiny and only contain a few cells and some can be gigantic and contain many millions of cells. The largest animal in the world is the Blue Whale (the largest land animal is the African Bush Elephant) and the smallest animal is an amoeba which is a single cell organism (unicellular).
Animals are eukaryotes which means that their cells have a nucleus which contains genetic material. Such cells are known as eukaryotic cells. Animals are also referred to as heterotrophs in which they obtain their energy by taking in carbon based compounds from other organisms.
