Back on the hedgehog trail

Lovely day on the greenway today. We had Debbie from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust helping us to do some hedgehog monitoring.

Food is placed in the middle and non-toxic ink either side of the food. The nocturnal hedgehogs are regognised by their footprints left on the white paper.

We have three tunnels set up and it will be interesting to see what the results are.

We also fixed a couple of the lose steps that head down to Cawston Wood.

And lastly, we seem to be tripping over bloody-nosed bettles at the moment. Five spotted last week and six spotted today, and we are not actively looking for them.

So a pretty productive workday.
