28 Species Count !



Date spotted: 19th Nov - 2PM
Location: Circular Walk - Zones 1,4+5
Observation: Yesterday before the rain, we walked up to Seven Acre Woods and found 2 area's to chuck down some steak (left over steak, not alot). We also put down some peanuts in areas we thought it would be eaten, in the hope when we visited today it would be gone. Successfully, all the steak was gone, with one area where the peanuts were had also gone. So we refilled the same areas again and will see if has been eaten again on Thursday. If it keeps disappearing we will set up a trial cam and try to identity what has eaten it ! We decided to cover some different places today and walked along to 12 O'Clock lane and and past Haycombe Cemetery. Very cold walk but produced 28 species!
