When people are planning to make woodland areas more
"environmentally-friendly", one thing commonly done is to leave
fallen trees and rotting timber in place. As well as providing
one way of slowly returning vital nutrients back to the earth, this also
provides a home for insects (like beetles and grubs), and
encourages certain types of
Funghi (mushrooms and toadstools).
Badgers may also eat mushrooms left out by friendly
Badgers will eat many types of
Funghi, as well as pig-nut
tubers and insects like dung
and bark beetles.
