Wasp spider

Spotted in the garden last week. We all got quite excited! More about this mini beast on the Buglife website.


We also attempted to survey hedgehogs in the garden using a tunnel lent to us by Vic from the City Council (example on another website). This has some suitable food in the centre with some white paper either side and some masking tape attaching the paper to the base. The tape is painted with a vegetable oil and charcoal mix. When the hungry creature walks on the masking tape it will mark the white paper on the way out. We tried two places in the garden but just recorded a lot of mice feet and a couple of cat paws. It has been a long time since we saw hedgehog poo in the garden so maybe we don’t have any hedgehog visitors any longer. Let us know if you see them in the park after dark.
