Braving the Elements
A day at home catching up with jobs. The weather was rather grim but not as bad as forecast. Still no Dragonflies or Damselflies since the torrential downpours on Tuesday and this tiny Essex Skipper was the only butterfly visitor. An evening visit from Mr Bullfinch and 2 early Hedgehogs was a real treat. The first Hedgehog to arrive was one that appeared earlier in the week looking quite thin and hungry. I wondered if she was a female who had recently given birth. The second arrival was more interested in persuing her than the food so definitely female- fingers crossed I may get to see some babies soon.
