As well as the bats, we heard a Little owl just as we finished, and after i had said goodbye to Simon, I walked round to my back garden and heard, strange noises from the flower border, I investigated further and found 2 Hedgehogs, WOW! I have never even recorded a hedgehog anywhere on my patch, let alone in my garden, cool or what ?
This morning I was a little late in getting out after last nights wildlifing, I didn't get out until 06:30. 49 species were recorded, a bit down on yesterdays total, and there were no additional species found for the months tally.
I was wrong about the CUCKOO calling, I thought yesterdays would be the last heard, but one was calling for 10 mins from 09:45. Only one Raptor was recorded - the KESTREL, a very average day on the patch this morning.
Below is a GREY HERON which flew fromthe Lake.
Below: A Female Black tailed Skimmer, that was seen in the Tree Nursery
Also seen in the tree nursery were a pair of mating White legged Damselflies
