Our recording of sightings of Hedgehogs has been very interesting with a dozen records reported by email and the most recent only last week, We hope that will continue.
We have received helpful support from the Somerset Environmental Records Centre with a spread sheet method of recording the grid reference location and relevant details of each sighting. I hope to be able to circulate that data to anyone interested over the next few weeks,

Group members are invited to a house meeting on Saturday 8th October from 9.30 till 11.00 AM to see what we have achieved so far. Also to ask for comments on proposed events such as bat surveys and moth count evenings. We hope to find volunteers around the village to help us keep the reports coming in of any wildlife sightings on a regular basis both in your gardens and wider afield.

A big surprise was the report of a Great Green Bush-Cricket, photographed in the Batty Piece nature reserve meadow , off Holdens Way, showing the insect going through the moulting phase of its growth . Photos were taken by local resident M. Thompson. These insects are found in both Batty Piece and the adjoining Eastfield.
Please let me know if you expect to be joining us on 8th Oct or would just like to be kept informed, Catherine Mowat or Matt Geen on 01458 250655 or David German on 259688.
