Nocturnal visitors

Spot welcomes a hedgehog to the grounds of OH. This is the first hedgehog we have seen for a very long time and it is reassuring to know they are still around in our very hedgehog friendly garden (minus canine companions).By coincidence in the Spring edition of Wild Cornwall, the magazine of Cornwall Wildlife Trust, which has only just arrived, there is a request for sightings of hedgehogs to be reported to the Cornwall mammal Group (see link). So we have reported it and in doing so learnt our OS coordinates.

Of course, I was very curious of the OS coordinates for Long Island and looked here:


but realize I need to be on a British island!

Then learned for latitude/longitude I am here:

40° 47' 48" N / 73° 6' 3" W

Always learning during my visit, as usual! :0)
