So excited to report that we've just become foster parents to a hedgehog from our local rescue centre. We'll be looking after Meadow the hedgehog until he can be released in the spring time. More details on the latest blog:

Had an absolutely fabulous day yesterday birdwatching at a local Worcestershire bird hide centre. Took so many photos that I've had to split this blog post into 3 parts. So first up the best photos from the reflection pool, including our best efforts with a Greater Spotted Woodpecker. Lots of photos on latest post.

Part 2 of this week's blog post about our amazing day at the wildlife hides. The second hide was set up for kingfishers and they didn't disappoint. Lots of photos and a few short videos on latest blog post.

Final part of my 3 part post on our visit to the local wildlife hides. This time an absolutely gorgeous kestrel. Such a stunning bird and wonderful to see it up close.

Winterwatch is on the telly and the Big Garden Birdwatch is just around the corner, so we've been seeing what we could do to increase the bird numbers in the garden. We've also added a new bird box with integral camera - fingers crossed our blue tits find it acceptable and we get to have our own version of Springwatch right here in Malvern! More details on the latest blog:

Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend and plenty of bird activity in the Too Lazy garden. 30 individuals of 14 species recorded in the hour - an improvement on 2016. Fingers crossed all gardens everywhere show an increase too! More on latest blog:

Great excitement here as we not only saw a blue tit in our new nest box, but managed to get the camera gizmo to record it! Fingers crossed for some proper nesting action in a few months, but in the meantime here's a short video on the latest blog post of all the action so far!

Just a quick update on our foster hedgehog. He's doing really well with just the occasional grump when we get him out to weigh him! All on latest blog post:
