The species featured on this strip are: the Natterjack Toad, the Red Fox, the Great Spotted Woodpecker and the Black-legged Kittiwake.

The Natterjack Toad is Ireland’s only toad species and is easily recognised by the yellow stripe that runs down its back. Natterjacks feed on insects, worms and small reptiles. At night they travel considerable distances through open terrain with sparse vegetation, thus enabling it to colonise new habitats very quickly.

The Red Fox has a brownish red coat and a bushy tail tipped with white, and is one of the most common mammals in Ireland. Its territory has expanded well beyond its traditional rural haunts and now includes towns and city suburbs. Red Foxes usually feed on rabbits, young hares, rats and small birds, but they also eat mice, insects and fruit.

The Great Spotted Woodpecker can be found in both broadleaved and coniferous woodlands and forests and recently has been spotted in gardens and parks. They feed on seeds, invertebrates, and occasionally bird eggs and nestlings. During spring they can be heard ‘drumming’; a sound produced by rapidly pecking on a dead branch or other resonant object.

The Black-legged Kittiwake is a small, cliff-nesting gull, named for its loud, nasal ‘kitti-wake’ call. Its short legs are usually black, helping to distinguish it from the Red-legged Kittiwake. The hind toe of each foot is reduced to a mere bump, meaning it has only three functional toes instead of four, giving the Black-legged Kittiwake its scientific name, tridactyla, which means ‘three-toed’.
