Developments in May 2013

It's been a long time since I last updated this blog. Unfortunately I had to stop putting food out for the hedgehogs because it was attracting rats which I believe were coming from beneath next door's decking.

Wendy vanished. I'm hoping she just moved on to new pastures.

Fast forwarding now to early May 2013, and we started to notice what appeared to be hedgehog faeces in the upper garden. This happened two or three nights in a row, although I was rather surprised by the quantity of it, and was wondering if perhaps a badger could be responsible.

Now. tonight, I was just looking outside at approx 10:30 to see where Elsa (my cat) had gotten to, when I saw a shape on the lawn. Further investigation revealed:

Yes, I did give this hog a handful of mealworms, which you'll notice in the photo.

I'm so pleased we have hedgehogs again. I'd heard that they are late this year, and that doesn't bode well for their numbers, so I'm especially pleased that we have a hedgehog presence here.
