Wildlife Encounter: Hedgehog

Poddling Around The Garden

We’ve never really gotten around to doing much with our garden. It’s in the long long term plan, on the other other list.

That doesn’t stop it attracting a nice range of beasties though. We get a lot of butterflies, bees and ladybirds. When there aren’t too many of the neighbourhood kittens and cats around we also see tiny birds and frogs. I’ve even had the crap startled out of me by a late night (supernaturally enormous) fox.

One happy afternoon we found this delightful little tyke. It’s been years since we last had a ‘hog in the garden.

He seemed content to just have a munch, but since I was watching from so close he ambled up for a stroke! How very lovely.

A delightful hedgehog encounter.

We hung out for a while until the fat interloping cat showed up. Oh well. Norby (obviously his name) tottered off away from the big bad pussy cat and climbed into a plastic bag next door. I detached him and sent him on his way.
