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.

This charming hedgehog came in for food. Watched it for a while sniffing at the food that was on offer. Did not eat anything but had a good drink.

Took another last look out and there was the resident hedgehog. Was up on the garden this time, having supper at the birdbath feeder. In the tray was mealworms, blitzed peanuts and blitzed sunflower hearts.
An interesting night tonight. After the resident hedgehog had been out for food another one called. Could not get a photo as it got spooked and left the garden.
Had a last look out before i went to bed and there feeding was this little one. Got the camera but a car had made it try and run for cover. Managed to get this photo before it left.
Considering how small it was, it has made me wonder if it is last years Tiny. Have compared photos and they look very much alike.

Tonight i managed to get a photo of the resident hedgehog that has moved into the lodge. waited for it to go farther along the path to the feeder.

Lucky that the hedgehog looked up at me. Gave me a nice chance to photograph its face.

Supper Time

After quite a wait, the hedgehog came out of the lodge for supper. Must have been around 23:15.
Clearly visible is the tippex mark that i gave it, just to keep tabs on the visitors. Not noticible until the photo is taken with flash.

Feeding On Mealworms

Looked out at 22:30 and low and behold ahedgehog was having a feed . Had its back to me to begin with, but it did oblige by turning its head just enough to get this photo.

By The Water Bowl

Lucky for me the hedgehog decided to come back for another photo shoot.
Was hoping it would take a drink but never did. Was more interested in getting by.

Was It Tiny

Started hedgehog watch tonight at about 21:15. Was hoping that the little mouse might appear as well.
Was not until about 23:00 that one appeared. And the good news is that it came out of the lodge. Was not a large one, in fact rather on the small side.

Could this one be Tiny that has taken up residence in the lodge. Would certainly have know it was there, as it was a very regular visitor from just a couple of months old.

Would certainly like to think that it was. That would surely be a lovely gesture from the most followed hedgehog in 2008.
