Porcupine in Bolton

Thanks to Pandora (who scented it but did not actually find it thankfully) Teresa has found a baby porcupine in Bolton. That is a pup or 'porcupette' for those who want to know these things. Partially hidden under a log for a few weeks I had the fortune to visit many times, even catching the mom visiting. Some help and searching led to the discovery of the den a couple of hundred of yards off, up and over the hill. More help and searching and much evidence of feeding on trees was found. As expected, baby is now traveling with mom and has not been seen.
