We hosted an event last night for Wild Connections last night (hence the late camera action) which was a talk on wildcats and pine martens. Unfortunately Moss didn’t show up, but the mozzy-type flies did, in their millions. Charlotte and myself have spent the 2 hours hovering every nook and cranny in the visitor centre and sweeping the ceiling! They are also congregating behind the shutters on the windows so I got a lovely face-full of the little critters when I opened up this morning. Feeling itchy now!
Thanks to Peter’s expert camera skills, some of you will have spotted the woodmouse munching away in the squirrel box about 20.50pm. Can you spot his ears?
Moss made his first showing at 1.23am and stayed for 7 minutes, returning again at 4.20am, but didn’t stop for any food. Another early morning feed at 6.07am for 4 minutes on the tall feeder before moving onto the low feeder for 2 minutes.
A few deer meandered past and our hungry hedgehogs are still fattening themselves up.
