            • Secondary consumer (shrew)
              • Tertiary consumer (owl)
      • food webs- layered and complex
    • Hedgerow

        • Hawthorn, hazel, holly, oak, ash and willow
      • Provides food, shelter, nesting sites
      • Soil is rich
    • Producer
      • Obtain energy from primary sourced like the sun and provide living matter for other animals
      • Consumer
        • Obtain energy from eating other organisms
        • Decomposer
