Unfortunately we are unable to allow mammals to be added on the bird news page so as quite a few entries were made in the thread we opened for Mammals in previous years we have now created a new one for 2020.

To enter a new sighting scroll to the bottom of this thread then click on 'REPLY'.  In the Topic please enter the species and also the date then in the message give details such as numbers seen, where it/they were seen and any other interesting information.  If you are passing on someone else's sighting please give their name.  Photos can be attached to the reply once submitted by clicking on the photo icon.

Any entries posted here will be passed to the County Recorder.

Less people around equals more mammals. Nice
Chinese Water Deer randomly and skittishly charging around the Blakeney Freshes south of the main reedbed at sunset.
Lapwings were upset and stooped at it several times.

A rather strange record. At Kelling WM a Grey Squirrel ran up the shingle bank towards the sea chased by 2 Rooks and a male Kestrel. Outcome unknown as the squirrel disappeared over the ridge. The nearest trees and hedges are some distance away.

Unfortunately we seem to have lost our Hedgehogs here at Sea Lawn. In recent years we've fed up to 3 or 4 each late autumn, but this autumn not a one. Anyone else got them hereabouts, eg on Hilltop?
