Thanks for all your comments. Me too, obelixx. Great to hear so many of you are seeing bees and butterflies out. Hope they have a good year.

Lovely to hear your spring bird-nesting stories! Not sure about your robin, Florrie bunda. But if it's got a beak full of worms it's well enough to find its own food. Perhaps it's been 'tamed' by one of your neighbours?

Very good point oldchipy - what are we eating? But yes, the loss of bees would dramatically alter the types of food we eat. On top of that, I couldn't imagine a world without bees, it would be miserable!

Talkback: Hedgehogs and foxes

Hi all, thanks for your comments.

Jacqueline - you can usually find details on the British Hedgehog Preservation Society website. They're updating the site at the moment, but here is the link:

Sarah's pondlife - nice to hear from you! happy Marion is still very active on the blogs but I;m sure you will find her on the forum, where she posts lots of lovely photos of her garden.

Lairyfairy - hedgehogs benefit from holes under fences so they can pass between gardens, leaf and log piles, compost heaps (just be careful when turning them), areas of long grass, safe access to and from your pond and no slug pellets!

Saw my first leaf-cutter only a couple of weeks ago Richard. Didn't get a chance to look at its underside... Kate
