Spring/Summer News

The Hedgehog survey continues at the LILAC field showing our prickly friends are making good use of the habitat available. Hedgehogs need our help so if you see one please report it to the Peoples Trust for Endangered Species-Hedgehog Street, which will help provide valuable information about our local/national populations.The more information we have, the greater the chance we can save them from disappearing from our countryside, see online for more details. Also have you seen a snake lately? We are interested in finding out how our resident reptiles are managing, if you have seen any lizards, slow worms, grass snakes or adders within the parish then please let us know, email: mail@longitchingtonwildlife.org.uk.
