Mobile but Not Mobile

Mobile but Not Mobile

Sadly no phone to hand or camera, stepped outside to see five baby nuthatches on our feeder, all sat in a row waiting to be fed by their parents. Brilliant sighting. The reason no phone, is that my old Apple gave up the ghost toward the end of May and I've since been...

Brown Long-Eared Bat Survey

Brown Long-Eared Bat Survey

It was my annual Brown Long-Eared bat roost count tonight and am rather concerned, as no bats appeared.  For nearly 20yrs we have had a Brown Long-eared bat maternity roost in our loft.  It used to be the third largest known colony in the South West.  The number of...

Seahorse Success Story

Seahorse Success Story

It has been a surprisingly seahorsey  week for me. The local news today was that no seahorses have been seen in dives along the Studland coastline in Dorset, since 2018, when a dead one was found. The seahorses have been missing for the past two years, but a recent...
