    Hedgehog footprint

    The original intention had been to look for early signs of Autumn and to monitor the ‘harvest’ and how it might be affecting wildlife.  But the weather has been so mild that few trees gave any sign of relinquishing their leaves.

    Recording Wildlife

    Although the temperature has still not done much more than get back up to the mean for the time of year, many plants are finally responding.  Plants love CO2. With most greenhouse crops, net photosynthesis increases by about 50% as CO2 levels rise from about 340 to 1,000 ppm. So perhaps one reason why Spring has seemed to be getting […]
