As autumn arrives and the nights are drawing in, much of our wildlife is slowing down and conserving energy to survive winter. This is in stark contrast to a few months ago when many of you spotted them scurrying around your garden.
While they were busy gathering food, rearing their young or finding new places to call home, you were busy recording them. Thousands of you kindly gave up your time to tell us what you’d seen.
You recorded 1,748 stag beetles
2,263 of you took part in our Hedgehog Hibernation survey recording 60,000 hedgehogs across 97 counties
You surveyed over 500 sites for our Living with Mammals survey.
Collecting this information every year is building a picture of how our wildlife is faring. In fact our annual mammal surveys revealed the rapid drop in hedgehog numbers meaning we need to act now to save them.
The results from 2014 are currently being analysed and we’ll let you know what we’ve found out in the New Year.
Together we are really making a difference. Thank you.
