Been a very long while since i got a photo
Of a hedgehog in my garden. Simply
because they stopped coming through no fault of my own.

Hopefully they will be a regular feature again. Though there is not much of this season left. Hopefully will have next season to look forward to.

Been A While

After what has been a trying couple of months i had a visitor tonight. Was a delight to see that a prickly friend has made a most welcome return. Judging by the size of it would say just a couple of years old. May even be just over a year old.

This is the hedgehog that uses the birdbath feeder.
Knows exactly where to go when it comes into the garden. The chicken and mince that it gets seem to be a firm favourite.

Standoff at the OK lodge

Came back from a walk with the dog, and could hear quite loud snuffling noises. Knew in an instant that something was going on down at the lodge.
Went indoors and opened the kitchen window to look out. And there it was unfolding in front of my eyes. The hedgehog that uses the lodge has taken an exception to another that may have taken a fancy to it. Has been going on for over an hour now. No doubt will be resolved in their own time.

I had seen this hedgehog come into the garden, and then lost sight of it. Shone a small torch in the under birdbath feeder and there it was. Well the rear end. Must have known there was some nice juicy chicken in there.
Was waiting for the hedgehog to finish eating its chicken, to get a photo of it on its way out. My patience was rewarded with this photo. This is the under birdbath feeder. Just right for a hedgehog and to small for a cat.
This one came in just after the first one above. Had a good feed of mealworms, then went over to have a drink of water. Did not stay long, as it was quite wet no doubt will be a good night for natural food.
