I've been sitting out in the garden watching the bats overhead and listening to the birds say goodnight and fall silent. Then one of the hedgehogs came in to the garden through the hedgehog gate, round the bole of the big ash tree, through the ferns on the shady bank, down the step and straight to the dish of food under the garden bench I was sitting on. It had some food there then wandered across the lawn to another feeding station and the bowl of fresh rainwater that's always there. After a while it wandered around the back of the pond and snuffled around in the little wilderness before going back up the step and along the shady bank to the hedgehog gate again.
Sleep tight everyone - sweet dreams
