Christmas 2019 Appeal

Personal Info

Donation Total: £5.00

raise money to save hedgehogsOur 2019 Christmas appeal this year is to raise funds to buy 100 sacks of hedgehog food for local hedgehog hospitals. Please help with a small donation. Together we can help hedgehogs survive the winter months.

Many volunteer wildlife rescuers are currently very busy with lots of under-nourished juvenile hedgehogs. A mild year means many hedgehogs have had 2 litters. Those hoglets born in the autumn have not had a chance to put on weight to hibernate.

Black Redstart

Ocean Edge to harbour mouth
Black Redstart
10:20: It came from west side of No.2 outflow. It flew under the superstructure before landing 20m on the east side. It was c50m out from wall when I noticed it, but I’m quite happy it could have come from further west along the wall.  It then went into the power station grounds (ref MD).
Sorry about the fake news of it flying over the fence as per my message on WhatsApp (see pic below) – attention to detail matters!

Rock Pipit – two sightings RN and Foreshore, but possibly same bird.
Meadow Pipit – 1 on perimeter fence near RN
Jack Snipe – 1
Common Snipe – 5
Reed Bunting – 4 together

Middleton NR quick check
Gadwall – 33 on main pond, 2 “no swimming”
Pochard – 1 male “no swimming”
Mallard – 4 main pond
Coot – 1 “no swimming”

Twite – 2 moved leisurely (not migration mode) along Heliport, last seen heading south down north wall.
