Starlings round here mimic herring gulls. The cry, that is, not their scavenging habits.

Saw the first hedgehog of the season in the garden last night . The dog's nose has been twitching for a week, but couldn't be sure until a visual sighting was made. Time to get the camera trap out.

The Hog that's been visiting our since early garden since early 2019 has been out of hibernation since the middle of this month, put food out for him ./ her every night and as regular as clockwork its been in very close to 21:20 each night, then back in the garden around 02:15 looking for more food, its got no chance at that hour, it goes straight to the food tray every time then spends up to an hour in the garden looking for food and exits past the camera.

The camera trap images aren't brilliant quality, but good to see the Hog's been in every night and whats else is about, the local cat for some reason doesn't like the camera trap and wont go near it, which ensures the hog gets his or her food.

Nice story about the hedgehogs. When we moved into our home 25 years ago the previous owner told us they fed hedgehogs. Well we have been feeding generations of them since then, they now have a purpose home made feeder and are fed propriety food (costs me a small fortune) but we look forward to seeing them. This year they appeared two weeks ago. The grandchildren love to see them.

I haven't seen a live hedgehog for many years despite living in the country. Plenty of foxes, badgers and deer, but no hogs. 😕

A tad to chilly in the evenings to be out laying on the grass, maybe in a month or so plus it'll be lighter in the evening, this is a shot of our friendly hog from last year.

Nice to see wildlife coming out after the winter.

We're still waiting for the curlews to arrive, the starlings mimic them as soon as they hit the moors nearbye.

Spent yesterday and today doing much needed clearing up at the back of the garden. We have a lot of pine trees and if the needles and cones and leaves from other trees are not cleared away little else gets the chance to grow. For the first time in months I don't feel exhausted after it. One very happy bunny here.

As last winter approached I found a hedgehog in the garden. Thinking he was looking for somewhere to hibernate I hastily made a den of leaves but he just ignored it and shuffled off.

Hardgravity, how envious I am you have moorland nearby with curlews!

Unfortunately we can't visit there at the moment, and after retireing I don't get the chance to sit in the middle of Ilkley Moor and do my paperwork while enjoying the wildlife..

..still..

...when all this is over.

I heard some curlews on Thursday evening as I walked past the Ben Rhydding playing fields. I guess there may be some on the moor too.

I haven't walked across the moor since October, it has been so wet. In contrast to last winter which was so dry we had tinder dry conditions by Easter. What a difference a year makes.

On the subject of mimics, the jays in the garden mimic the tawny owls nesting behind the shed. Some of them are really good at the kee-wick sound.
