Thanks. It didn’t make it, and unfortunately I can’t make the deadline for sending it to off for autopsy before the weekend.

I did speak to someone from the Wild Garden research group, who said they thought it would be unlikely that it would have eaten the fertiliser or got sick from it.

Anyway, it’s very sad but I suppose this is going to happen occasionally even in a wildlife friendly garden. It’s interesting that it made its way to the feeding station to die.

I put the camera out last night and I still have some healthy looking visitors. Fingers crossed there’ll be lots of babies this year.
