A Hedgehog of Another Kind

Tuesday, October 11th 2016

Last night we finished checking our bat boxes with the help of members of local Bat Groups, some of our volunteers and ‘guest helpers’ Stacey (back from her holiday, not yet in the Antarctic and hoping to see some bats):

And Leanne (normally to be found working at Foxglove on a Sunday, but spending a day off from her week-job volunteering!):

We continue to admire the huge variety of fungi that are cropping up around the reserve. Today this Wood Hedgehog, Hydnum repandum, caught our eye…

It was a busy volunteer day today, the bird feeders were filled and we tackled a particularly overgrown section of the heath and added to our dead hedge.

From a distance the contrast is satisfyingly obvious:

Thank you to all who helped. I think lots of us will be heading home dog-tired tonight – especially Clemie!
