At 12:30 today the first blue tit egg hatched. Have been worried about these, they were laid 3 days earlier than last year but the mum didn’t sit on them for a while. They have hatched 5 days later than last year. I assume they delayed hatching to try and avoid as much of the awful weather as possible, but I wasn’t sure they could do that.
This is a short video of it being fed shortly after attaching. The parents seem intrigued as to what it is!
Church the hedgehog was the first hog we released for Cardiff Hedgehog Rescue last year.
Last night an unidentified hog appeared ion the cameras. Much to my delight it was Church. She’s doing well, had a few ticks which I had to remove (hate them) and she weighed 714g.
This is her now
This her been weighed last year
This is some video I caught of year building her nest on the cams last year. She didn’t stay there for the winter though. No idea where she went. They bury themselves so well I imagine it’s impossible to find them.
