Tales from the riverbank – The Beyonder

IT’S hardly surprising to hear the mental health charity Mind saying how time spent surrounded by nature benefits both our mental and physical wellbeing.

Report sightings of London’s hedgehogs to help them survive | East Croydon Community Organisation

In the 1950s there were around 30 million hedgehogs in Britain, but today the number is less than one million. They have virtually disappeared from many parts of London. The London Wildlife Trust is recording where hedgehogs live in London, so they can build an accurate picture of where their help is most needed.  If you…
