Rural animals create traffic

Country Life has noticed a growing trend in British wildlife causing heavy traffic-not by scampering, trotting or waddling across our highways and byways, but by becoming internet sensations. From live webcams to one-off clips, it seems the world is fascinated by our feathered and furry friends and their eccentric behaviour.

Here are a few of our favourites
