The Ealing Wildlife Group put together this thoughtful blog ‘When is Watching Wildlife Harmful to Wildlife‘, in September 2020 and is still applicable today. We need to protect the wildlife from disturbance or harm and sadly sometimes our behaviour as interested observers does the opposite.

For more advice from Ealing Wildlife group on Wildlife and habitat emergencies: pollution, injuries, crime and care which has some important guidance on what to do when you spot an injured animal or when you see signs of river pollution or other environmental damage.
