What animals have you been known to see roaming the streets and gardens at night? Do you ever hear sounds of moving creatures outside in the middle of the night?

Where I live it’s common to see and hear foxes and sometimes hear owls but rare to see wild badgers, hedgehogs or rabbits. I think the occasional bat has been spotted in flight during the warmer months.

What about you, what nocturnal animals are common where you live?

Dying at the mental image of a gerbil casually chilling in the garden laugh.gif

We get quite a lot of cats in the garden during both the day and night! It is not uncommon for me to hear meowing sometimes when I am trying to sleep. Yay for living on a street full of quite a few other cat owners. A tiny hedgehog paid a visit in the garden last year and I wanted to keep it so badly, so adorable ;_;

I'd love to see more owls. I don't think I've ever seen one near where I live (not that we're in a rural area at all) </3

We get foxes. A lot of them, and I can appreciate them apart from their hideous screaming/mating calls/whatever, it's one of the most horrible noises I've ever heard. Also my cat got into a fight with one of them recently and lost half his tail :x

I love seeing foxes, casually passed one coming the opposite way to me just after 5am this morning during my walk up to work. A couple of weeks ago a neighbour in the flat upstairs asked me to approach one in order to get it to move as it was sitting right outside her door and she was scared of them :')

I’d never seen a fox before until I was 22. I remember one running across the field of the school I had my first placement in really early one morning.

At my home in Portsmouth we would ALWAYS get foxes. They made the most hideous screeching noises ever, it used to freak me out so bad, I thought someone was being murdered or something laugh.gif

I remember one fox somehow ended up on our balcony on the second floor and couldn't get down, and we found it asleep there the next morning. I still don't know how that happened :').

I mostly see cats, rabbits and deer. My two most traumatic experiences were seeing a skunk, luckily while I was inside, and seeing something that was either a fox or a coyote, not sure which but it looked like a mix of the two and it was so ugly mellow.gif

I've only ever seen bats when they've come indoors and both times were actually during the day, the worst case being when one was in my house around this time last year. drama.gif

I suppose there are a few cats around this neighbourhood but not a whole lot else that I've seen lol. In my childhood home, we used to get hedgehogs in the garden the whole time tho and my dog tried to eat them.

We had a hedgehog at work the other night, I almost stepped on it and when I looked down it had curled up into a defensive ball. We also have an owl and a few bats that likes to fly around just after/around dusk, I used to be worried but I think that the owl is definitely more qualified to fly than some of the pilots...
