The Occassional Visitors:

Grey Squirrels, Roe Deer, & unseen night-time Deer

  Grey Squirrel Not on the Lovrin site itself, but 16th Oct. 2018, a sole Roe Deer grazing on the verge on Hoton Road just out of Wymeswold. A doe I think, she slipped into undergrowth and disappeared on my approach. Another similar Roe Deer sighting, 27th May 2019, mid-way between Cotes and Hoton on the verge of the A60.

On the night of 16-17th July 2019, when grass in un-grazed paddocks was at it's tallest (prior to hay making), a group of deer camped overnight on the Lovrin site. They were not seen, and left no sign of entry or exit from site, but took down electric fencing hidden by the tall grass and flattened a large area of grass where they lay down in the night.

Reptiles

Our one copse covered pond is mostly well overgrown, and although the most likely spot for reptilian life, is neither regularly nor overly closely inspected. However, out on the paddocks, and in the wake of a number of consecutive days of persistent heavy rain in the summer of 2007, there was one close encounter with a sizeable Grass Snake 'swimming' through the grass, and which had mistaken the site for a paddy field ! Grass Snake September 2016 and a big fat frog sits out on the paddocks begging for it's photo to be taken. A Common Frog, one of a great many which grazed the paddocks that year. This is the actual frog photographed on-site, not just a sample of the species photo as most others on this page. Occassional plagues of frogs are not unusual, small specimens often leaping suddenly out of the grass as they sense the lawn mower approaching fast ! Common Frog
