Muntjac footprints at the bottom of our garden? We haven't seen Muntjac footprints before and were unsure. The prints are approx. 3.5-4 cm, and whomever it be.. they had a party around the bat flight last p.m.
The Fox Hunt
I’ve just stepped out of the house to take our furry buddy for a walk and heard the sound of a horn …the hunt is in a nearby wood. The horn sounded again and then that awful, bloodcurdling sound of the dogs baying like crazy. I could also hear the quad bikes and tried...
Toads on our track

I am in a quandary. Caring for bats is an important part of my life. Chatting with finders and promoting bat care, bat conservation etc is also an important part of the work. It's funny how one thing can lead to another though. Through my last bat rescue, I've been...
They are on the move. Having seen reports of frog spawn, plus frogs on the move in other parts of the UK, and as it is 8C and raining tonight - I did my first Frog/Toad Patrol of 2023. Sadly, I found two dead frogs that had already been run over on the road, but there...
