‘Digging for victory’ – Hedgehogs!!

DSCF3571

For the first time in years I’ve seen a hedgehog – snuffling about its business up by the barn. Looks a youngish one – which means there are probably more about. Given the wet weather this year I am very sure there is a lot of food about for them.

Hadn’t seen any evidence for ages so really good to see one in the flesh – apparently they are almost becoming an endangered species here in the UK

    • I think that might be badgers – they can be quite destructive. Hedgehogs can be good news for growers as they target snails and slugs. Its the destruction of habitat that is reducing the hedgehog population – plus there almost suicidal determination to get squashed by cars!!
