Creatures like deer have been spotted venturing into village centres like Boscastle.
Birdsong can be heard as our aeroplanes are grounded and people staying at home means fewer animals like hedgehogs and badgers are being killed on our roads.
The pandemic has also meant more people have had a chance to observe nature and spot wildlife, including basking sharks off the Cornish coast.
Almost seven weeks into lockdown a reduction in man-made noise has meant birdsong can clearly be heard.
Whilst our human footprint is currently lighter on our landscape some creatures may well be benefitting but whether or not any long-lasting gains will be made remains to be seen.
