Queensbury Today


       Thought this Hedgehog was ready for hibernating
      behind the house today.
 Closer inspection found it no longer with us with no
 signs of injury.
Hedgehogs are a rare sight in Queensbury now.

A poor visible migration this morning in the strong SW>5 with just a scattering of Meadow Pipits >S
and a flock of 14 Goldfinch >W which could have been local birds as opposed to movers.
Thanks to HC for the text today reporting a Bar Tailed Godwit at Oxenhope on the shoreline (KM).
Hopefully the promised bad weather tomorrow will bring something down.

Poor Hedgehogs are sadly, what appears to be in freefall decline.
We could do with a barwit at Fly Flatts.

I get a hedgehog in my garden, its dug a hole under my fence and goes under 2 other neighbours fences (that I know of).

I have seen 3 locally lately.

I have some hedgehog food and tried dog meat but local cats keep getting there first!
