Biodiversity award and monthly survey.

Up at dawn this morning to carry out the monthly bird survey at Hemblington Church. At this time of day there tends not to be the variety found on the regular bio-blitzes, but there are usually a few surprises.

Today I recorded 66 birds of 11 species: I suppose the most interesting was a Kestrel hunting around the tower. I also saw a few rabbits, Grey Squirrels and a Hedgehog!

The Friends of Hemblington Church have won a Community Biodiversity Award: most gratifying, and a well-deserved acknowledgement of the hard work put in by the core team and the various groups (BVCG, BaDCoG etc ) that help with the ongoing work to make the church and its surroundings so attractive to wildlife - and human visitors!
