We saw this little chap (or chapess) in the garden today. We do see them from time to time but as they are nocturnal it’s unusual to see them out looking for food in broad daylight.


It looked very healthy but we thought it wise to supplement it’s diet with a large portion of our cat’s supper. It won’t please the cat very much but it certainly pleased the hedgehog.

I’m surprised that it wasn’t wearing a lifejacket. A lot of our ground is now waterlogged after all the rain we’ve been having. I read a day or two ago that we are rapidly approaching, and likely to exceed, the wettest May on record.
