What a whirlwind of events! We’re almost two weeks into lockdown here at the Hawk and Owl Trust. All of our staff and volunteers are missing life at the Trust, be it on the reserves, out on the road, or behind the scenes.

We’ve had many kind words from our followers online and we just want to say a huge thank you to those who continue to support us.

We would love to hear your stories about the wildlife you’ve seen at home or when you have been dusting off the cobwebs on your allotted hour of freedom. (Note: We can only see these if you send them to us on Facebook)

Recently I (Laura Wharton, Social Media Officer) discovered a hedgehog in my back garden. A kind neighbour had rescued the poor thing from his swimming pool (lucky neighbour) and left the rather large prickly creature near one of our pear trees for my toddler to see. 

We shielded the hedgehog (Mr.Spikesmore) from harm as it de-pooled itself with a few borrowed items from my toddler- a Little Tikes car and a small fire engine. My cat (Womble) was dismayed that I should leave out some of her cat food for someone other than she. Eventually, Mr.Spikesmore (full-bellied) waddled off safely to his home.

If you have a story about the wildlife you have seen during your lockdown we’d love for you to share it with us on FB. Photos most welcome! 

Take care and stay safe
Laura
