It’s been a while since I wrote the last British Animal Challenge update – back in the long, hot days of August. Now the clocks are about to change, and there’s been a lot of rain, so spending time outdoors is less attractive.
I had hoped to see some new bats and cetaceans in September. Sadly I wasn’t able to identify any new bats, and didn’t see any dolphins or whales. My second attempt at seeing water shrews was unsuccessful. But I did see a stoat.
As the Scots voted ‘no’ to independence, my list hasn’t reduced, but the Jersey Toad has been a small addition.
Other animals I have seen in September and October:
In November I’m hoping to see some harvest mice, and maybe some other small mammals.
