Hidden Biodiversity

We’ve reached the bank holiday weekend which ends Biodiversity Week, and it’s dull, much cooler than usual and due to be very wet for the next few days. However, there is a lot of biodiversity out there to be seen. A lot of it happens at night – check out this video of a hedgehog taken from a camera trap in my garden:

It was near midnight when the hedgehog scuttled across the lawn, looking for invertebrate prey, or anything larger. About twenty minutes later my dog insisted I follow her as she had picked up its scent. Of course, I didn’t know why she was so excited until I saw the video later.

At this time of year there are many nocturnal creatures about which you might not even notice pass you by in the night. And there are lots I still haven’t seen yet. I’ll have to tell you more about them later. But they are out there, awaiting discovery.
