The Week in Botany
Here’s another collection of stories shared by people following @BotanyOne on Twitter. It’s been a busy week for me, so a lot of these stories are ones I missed and will want to catch up on.
I’m hoping this all works ok. I’m writing this following a late night spent trying to capture an injured wild hedgehog. I gave up in the small hours as I wouldn’t have been in a fit state to drive. Wildlife cameras showed it hobbled past ten minutes later. I’m now in a ‘too tired to sleep’ state, so my apologies if I’ve broken a link to a story or paper somewhere.
The next issue will be with you at the same time next week unless I’m rescuing more wildlife. In that case, I’ll take a nap and send it a little later. Until then, take care.
