However I did not see any in the Heapey/Lower Healey area last Sunday. The only thing of note then was approximately 70 Mallard on Heapey No. 3 lodge.
A single Small Tortoiseshell butterfly was in my garden at Great Knowley.
A 2/3 grown hedgehog was in my daughter's garden in Meadow Way Coppull on the 10th & 11th October.
