GWRS, it's not your imagination regularly see the male Sparrow hawk, now it's the females turn to do a fly past, she's much bigger and this is in the town centre. Couple of weeks ago saw 11 Red Kites soaring above us could not believe that, never seen so many.
The Hedgehogs have taken over, I have been putting out 5 small bowls of dried cat food in the feeding stations and it's all been going, so I wanted to check yet again, it's not cats getting in. Well, it's not, 5 Hedgehogs and 3 Hoglets all finding the feeding stations. I went out last night and counted them, and then just to make sure I wasn't counting the same ones I ran round the garden with a torch, just in case they were tricking me.
I have found that the the Hoglets struggle with feeding and drinking from bowls as they are too high, so will now put out saucers instead.
The Hedgehogs can go through holes in the fences or under the gates to roam, if they want to.
