Description:

A common species featured well on iSpot but I thought this image of one 'hibernating' in the wild (rather than in a building where they are more commonly encountered) might be of interest.
It was still there today (27th Jan) although had moved very slightly earlier in January, and will be interesting to see how long it lasts as it doesn't seem very well hidden.
