Sightings from Harry Wheate 8/10/14 - Sparrow hawk just sitting in the apple tree above the bird feeders - he was out of luck


13/10/14 - Hedgehog juv at Shaftesbury St


19/10/14 - Hedgehog juv in Rose Ave Hazlemere in daytime - I rescued it from the traffic (it didn't object) and put it down in a garden and when I checked later it had gone.


31/10/14 - A sprig of apple blossom out in the garden - I know plants bloom sporadically through the winter but I don't recall seeing apple blossom before.
A geranium which survived the winter outside without protection is now blooming for the second time this year.


Plus House Sparrow, Dunnock, Great/Blue/Long-tailed/Coal Tits, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Jackdaw, Starling, Blackbird, Robin, Wren, and a Red Kite in the cherry tree once.
