First frog spawn 28th March at 23 Barmoor Close after frogs present from first week in March. Just one clump to date but lot of activity today.
Dead badger by gate to Johnson’s Marsh at 0830 this morning (22/03/2017). Looks like road casualty. Picture is of course from a live one!
Hedgehogs are already up and about in early March 2017 in Scalby (Photo taken in 2016) as evidenced by the droppings on the lawn. Like Winnie-the-Pooh it was more of a squeeze getting out of the cage than getting in after demolishing a fat ball!
Found in both front and back lawns of my garden in 2016 Up to 500 plants but only a very few reached fruiting stage. Now over 100 plants counted by 9th April so lawn will have ‘unmown patches’ again! Interestingly the lawn feed etc on the back lawn has had no effect on the fern.
Rescued from a felled tree at West Heslerton in January 2016
At least 7 Goshawk, 6 Common Buzzard, 1 Sparrowhawk. Also 120 Pink Footed Geese North.
