They often are based in the countryside and venture into the urban environment to search for food. However, with rougher habitats of the urban area such as a railway bank, waste ground or woodland shelterbelt. Smaller mammals, such as Hedgehogs or mice, may often live entirely in garden areas, with a home in one garden and a feeding area that extends over several.
