This isn't my photo (I got it from the internet) but it's one of his rellies:
I love 'hedgy-pogs' and most years we have some in the garden, their courtship is VERY noisy....definitely where the hog bit of their name comes from :) 'Spike' returned about a week ago and each night he (or is it she?) comes to feed (special hedgehog food) and drink (water, not Chablis!) between about 10pm and the early hours.
We've rescued a couple over time - one was obviously unwell as it was wandering during daylight in a bad way (snuggled up on the coir front door mat!) and the other was a really under weight baby when Winter was setting in. We took them to a local wild life sanctuary and both did survive and were returned to the wild. They are just such lovely little creatures and very entertaining to watch - bless! No wonder I love Penny Black's hedgehog stamps so much :)
The Ribbon Girl have some yummy stash once again, the link is on my sidebar - go see! Red, white and blue - just in time for the Royal Wedding :))
