the 2020 hedgehog map
In 2020, far more hedgehogs were reported to the online Big Hedgehog Map than in previous years. These have been added to our local reports on the map. Please note, the spots are not individual hedgehogs. They are places where hedgehogs have been seen and recorded. We cannot estimate the number of hedgehogs but the overall picture seems quite encouraging.

Have you seen a hedgehog this year? Please let us know so we can add it to this year's map.
This information may help us to protect hedgehogs in Exmouth.
These fascinating videos of a long eared bat were taken in the dark with infra-red cameras inside the attic of a house in Exmouth. Bats, usually one at a time, have been visiting throughout the winter feeding on small moths and flies overwintering in the attic. Impossible to tell if it's the same bat each time. In the first video, the bat uses its ears to check out the attic space.

Bats are legally protected. If you think you have bats in your property, please get advice from Natural England. Do not disturb the bats by putting up cameras without specialist advice.
