I forgot to pick some strawberries this evening, so had to nip out at 10pm.
While hunting for ripe ones in what was left of the light, I came across someone else having a snack:
There used to be hedgehogs in my garden but I've not heard them snuffling or seen one for about 3 years, so it's great that they're back!
Great to see him / her
Lucky lucky you. Did you remember to get your strawberries though?
Lucky you wish I had a hedge pig snuffling around my garden
How lovely, wish we had one too
I want one
Just lovely Bob
I want one too nut - is there such a thing as hog envy?
Nice one Bob. A hedgehog shuffles around here too. Seen him a couple of times and always makes me chuckle I am careful on my snail hunt that I don't step on him.
. Lovely hoggie! if you leave food out they will certainly find it and more will come, especially late summer/early autumn when they are stocking up for hibernating.
We have several visiting nightly . All of the wet food I put out gets eaten most nights. And most of the seeds mix I make up.
I found Teigan - who is one of my overwinterers from 2012 - with a man hog twice her size. I can only say that her attempts at dissuading his romantic advances were half hearted at best - lol! She is my special hoggy as she is just so nice, lovely natured girly, always seems happy, always wearing a smile when I grab her for a weight check or to redo her mark. I really hope she has babies - they will be her first - but I hope she doesn't decide to leave me a late litter of autumn bubs
good to see them when they come back isn't it.
Often hear mine snuffling and saw him/her trotting up the side path one night last month.
Off to buy a strawberry plant!
That's great Bob
We had one that would visit us last year but we've not seen or heard him/her at all so far this year
