Another mammal thats becoming increasingly scarce is the Hedgehog so I was pleased to see one in our garden on several occasions recently. Grey Squirrels are the bane of my life and are constantly destroying even supposedly 'squirrel proof' feeders by gnawing through the metal. Occasionally they hit the jack pot and the destroyed feeders spills its contents on the grass- this is what happened the other day and the Hedgehog must have decided to come and make the most of the feast rather than sleeping during the day.

Although it initially curled up after about 5 minutes sat in the pouring rain it became confident enough to start sniffing around before trundling off into the hedge.

Its really nice to see it snuffling around the garden.
