Welcome visitors

Three baby hedgehogs have been snuffling around the undergrowth in our garden at dusk recently, and spending the days sleeping in the flower borders. I suspect that their mother must have nested in the accumulation of dead leaves under the beech hedge. 

Hedgehog numbers seem to have plummeted around here over the last couple of years, judging by the very low number of road casualties that I've seen.


  1. Great to see you have a family of hogs there.

  2. We were delighted to have them in the garden again, John - we have seen any there for a couple of years.
