The habitat of the Animal of the Year offers many useful aspects to other species: for some a bridge across waters, for others food, a landmark. a place for hunting.
During the summer mice, bats, robins, blackbirds, weasels, minks, a pinemarten, an otter, foxes , a heron, wood pigeons, a honey buzzard and a hunter were recorded by the trail camera, We see how the blackbird mother feeds her chicks, how the weasel and otter mark territories, how the weasel hunts and how the wood pigeon and the honey buzzard come to drink. Of course the Animal of the Year itself was caught on the record but this we already saw in the earlier text "How the beaver survived the drought".
