Comma butterfly on coneflower

This stunning Comma butterfly landed on a purple coneflower in my York wildlife garden. This is the first one I have seen in the garden. I love the contrast of the beautiful red against the pink/purple of the coneflower. It flitted around and kept landing back on the same flower.

Brownie has ringworm
Brownie, a little hedgehog hoglet in my rescue centre has got ringworm. You can see the rough patches on his nose and his pink swollen paws. He is being treated with tea tree cream to remove the crusts and heal the infected areas. It is very debilitating so he will receive extra vitamins and minerals whilst he is treated. He is eating fine and putting on weight.

Hoglets are getting bigger

The four hoglet siblings that came into my York rescue 10 days ago are growing fast and already much bigger. They have lost their baby spines and are now eating crunchy kitten biscuits to help their teeth grow. They are all healthy and doing very well. They will be ready to go to an outdoor run to prepare them for their return to the wild in a week or so.

Handmade silver clay earrings with purple glass drops
Been busy in my workshop making these silver earrings. They are embossed with a deep ‘leaves and swirls’ design and then I have hung beautiful amethyst purple czech glass drops beneath. They really are a statement - very pleased with them. I’ve got lots of other colours of czech glass drops so the colours can be changed to go with different outfits. All sales support the little hedgehogs in my York hedgehog rescue centre.

William hoglet stomping in his food bowl
The latest arrival at my York rescue centre is William. He was found out in the day looking scared during a rainstorm. At 109g he was far too young to have have left his mum. Something must have happened to her. Where there is one there are usually more but unfortunately we couldn’t find any others. He is a feisty little thing despite being so tiny. Here he is enjoying stomping in his food bowl. It is full of scrambled egg (no milk) mushed up in a special lactose-free puppy milk. Little hoglets love getting up to mischief and stomping in their food bowls. He is putting on weight now, which is great.
