Now that the clocks have gone back our wildlife prepares for colder times ahead. Birds will finish their moult so that they have fresh feathers for winter. Now is a great time to put out roost nest pockets for winter shelter. Hoglets will need to put on enough weight to be able to survive hibernation, little ones found out in the day should be kept warm and rushed to your nearest hedgehog rescue centre. Looking forward, now is a great time to sow wildflower seeds, while the ground is warm from the long summer germination will be quicker. Winter spectacles to look forward to include starling murmurations and frosty spiders webs!
