zodiaccasino What a year at The Lilac Grove. Hedgehogs, Birds, Bio-blitzing and Autumnwatch!
We started with some lovely views of a Bittern at Slimbridge
We discovered we had foxes, who now visit regularly
Hedgehogs got released back to the wild after spending the winter in the spare room
The Bug Hotel gets an overhaul
The Blue Tits nest again although not entirely successful, only 2 chicks fledge
We learn how to monitor the river for Riverflies to check the health of the river
A released hedgehog returned with Hoglets
Then to top it all of we had an amazing visitor to the garden, Waxwings!
All in all an amazing year, here’s to 2013 and let’s hope its even better. I just need to get better at keeping notes, there’s so much here it’s hard to keep track!
Get out and look, it’s incredible what you can find 🙂
Happy New Year Everyone
