Sea Mills and Coombe Dingle wildlife during lockdown

Foxes, fox cubs and badgers

Video by David Watkins – in a Sea Mills Garden May / June 2019

The film above includes fox cubs running around a garden in Sea Mills and also a night time confrontation between a badger and a fox. It was filmed last year but it has been well reported that wildlife has been flourishing during the quieter times of lockdown. We would be interested to know if local people have seen an increase in wildlife, or noticed it more.

Please share your photos or videos with us on our social media or via email.

Thank you very much to David for sharing this video with us.
