http://www.planetreport.net Australia has a huge feral Camel population, in fact it is the largest in the world, with approximately 300,000 camels living in central and western Australia. They were brought to the country in the 1800s by the British to help explore and build infrastructure.

http://www.gardenandgreen.co.uk The fur of rabbits is very effective in making them blend in amongst grass, when they are feeding. This excellent camoflauge helps keep them safe from predators. The next time you pass what you think is an empty field, remember, you could be being watched!
http://www.gardenandgreen.co.uk Mid August is the height of summer when the weather can be at its hottest, (or of course here in Britain it can also be torrential rain, or perhaps both in one morning) The late summer flowers are out and annuals are at their biggest and best. However, amongst all this vibrant colour there is also the first few signs that Autumn is not too far away with some early flowering plants shedding their petals.
There is many different types of bumblebee. The next time you are in your garden look closely, and you will likely find the 'bees' on your plants are various different species. On this Lavender there is -
1. White Tailed Bumblebee (Probably the Garden Bumblebee, there is various types of White Tailed Bumblebee and they are very similar.)
2. Red-tailed Bumblebee
3. Common Carder
http://www.gardenandgreen.co.uk The Chequered Skipper butterfly became extinct in Britain, about 40 years ago. Butterfly Conservation has just re-introduced it at a secret location in central England, where hopefully it will re-establish a population.
