Hello Spring - I'm back in town!

Well I never, Darnell already knew I had my suspicions from the food bowl being kicked round the garden last night, but just lookeee who rolled into town again:

It seems that both little Spike and probably a larger hedgie were out playing last night - eating the dried food we've been leaving out for so long as well as drinking their water - err, and having a real party just kicking everything around. Quite a mess of scattered food left, although the camera images we have aren't clear enough to post here. We're almost sure it was two different hedgies enjoying their first Spring outing.

Tee, hee - I half expected them to hop onto their hind legs and do an Irish jig in celebration! Great news after the worries we had :)

You're soooo lucky having hedgies! All I get is foxes although haven't seen or heard them this year which is good as they stress the cats!

Oh how lovely to have two hedgies come visit on a regular basis Di and they are so cute and will eat up all the slugs in your garden so are useful too. x

Lovely to have the hedgies back. Spring must certainly be on its way. They are always welcome too as they keep down the pest population. (That´s if you don´t overfeed them with cat food!!) It´s fun to think of them having a Spring celebration though. Kate x

Oooh what a cutie nice to see that they are around and that sping is finally on it's way l just love the thought of seeing hedgies l only hope we don't lose any in the pond like last year we have put more netting along the bottom so hopefully there won't be any xx

Ponders...... Spring's back? When did it leave? I must have slept through that day.

Adorabubble! We try not to encourage these little darlings, as we have badgers that would be only too pleased with a quick spiky snack. I'm so glad you can give them a safe welcome.
