Pictures are often not uploaded to the gallery for several days, if you have the picture elsewhere on the internet such as Twitter or Flickr you can copy the link onto here. It’s always a dilemma knowing what to do for the best and there is much conflicting advice out there, but Youngsters can gain between 10-20 grams per night so there is still plenty of time. Last year the minimum BHPS suggested weight was 450 grams, I weighed two of our prickly visitors in December – I couldn’t catch them earlier! – at just over the minimum and they both survived the winter. 🙂
