Nature Watch: Geese, a baby swallow and a baby hedgehog

It has been a busy week this week but I have tried to escape for a few hours on a couple of occasions, sitting by the River Wye at Backney. I did manage to capture quite an amazing movie film of a kingfisher fishing, but I am hanging on to that one for the time being - for a local DVD I am producing.

Whilst at the location, I took the photos below of Canadian Geese gathering and of the sky. The baby hedgehog was taken in my own garden on Monday evening. The photo does nothing to show its size. It was tiny. The swallow in the bottom photo is one of the new hatchlings I have been following at the White Lion. Having fledged a couple of weeks ago now, it keeps returning to the perch near its nest, still gaping occasionally, expecting food to be delivered.

Herefordshire Council's Advice to Farmers

Following the Foot and Mouth incident in Surrey, Herefordshire Council's advice to farmers is that they should contact Defra for the latest Foot and Mouth information. They can do this by either visiting the Defra website,, or by calling the Defra helpline on 08459 335577. This line is open from 6am to 10pm, seven days a week for enquiries relating to Foot and Mouth Disease.

Anyone wanting to report the illegal movement of ruminants and pigs should contact Herefordshire Council's animal welfare team on 01432 260530. If anyone has difficulty securing supplies of the appropriate disinfectants the council's animal health team holds emergency supplies and can be contacted on 01432 260530.

Three year old boy injured by a car in Camp Road

While most of the town were lining up to watch the Carnival on Saturday, a three year old boy was involved in a nasty accident in Camp Road, at its junction with Alton Road.

The collision involved the young boy and a blue Volvo V70 estate car. The child suffered a head injury and suspected broken leg and was taken by air ambulance (which landed at John Kyrle High School) to Frenchay Hospital in Bristol for treatment to his injuries, which are not thought to be life-threatening.

Camp Road was temporarily closed between Alton Road and Kent Avenue while police began an investigation into the collision. Police are keen to speak to anyone who may have witnessed the accident. They are asked to contact PC Colin Kerfoot at the Hereford Roads Policing Unit on 08457 444888.
