John Beswick Wildlife
Taking inspiration from some of Britain’s most loved and indigenous wildlife, John Beswick has created a number of charming studies in two sizes. The Badger
has been much maligned over the years with culls and suggestions of its association with bovine TB. Despite the bad press the badger remains one of the most loved creatures and to see one in the wild is always a thrill. Larger than you might expect, the badger is mainly nocturnal living in sets in woodland although the urban badger is a phenomenon becoming increasingly more common. Another animal that has adapted to urban living is the fox
. Prolific across Britain in all habitats from salt marshes to sand dunes and tops of mountains to your street, the Fox continues to thrive. The only place in the UK without foxes are the Scottish Islands where they can only be found on the Isle of Skye. John Beswick have also created a Miniature Fox
to compliment the larger study. Native to Britain the Otter
faced near extinction in the 1960s mainly due to water pollution and loss of habitat. Thankfully with protected status and better water management techniques the otter is once again thriving in the UK. The John Beswick Miniature Otter
study sees two young Otters full of inquisitiveness. The John Beswick Wildlife Collection pieces make wonderful gifts for anyone with a love of the British Countryside and the animals who enrich our lives.
