South Yorkshire’s garden wildlife has been revealed in a new survey - with the endangered red squirrel rarely seen in Doncaster.

The world’s biggest wildlife survey by the RSPB reports a chorus of frogs hopping around in South Yorkshire gardens, but our native squirrels are in the red.

Nearly half of people in South Yorkshire who took part in the Big Garden Birdwatch see common frogs in their gardens on a regular basis but only a fraction ever see the endangered red squirrel, according to the second round of results from the world’s biggest wildlife survey, run by the RSPB.
