Eerie screams, quiet snuffling and snippets of song are just some of the wildlife sounds that can be heard after dark. While some animals turn in for the night, others are getting ready to begin their 'day' and for some species, such as the Red Fox, Badger, Tawny Owl, and Nightjar, the period from dusk to dawn signifies the peak of their activity.
