I have been hog bothering again. This one was lurking in the woodpile, looking for crunchy beetles.
I spotted this one rummaging in the ivy for caterpillars.It finally broke cover.
Please spread the word that people should be aware that hedgehogs may be nesting or snoozing in their gardens. Always check undergrowth before mowing, strimming or using any power tools as they could injure or kill hedgehogs. Please also consider donating to your local hog rescue, they are very busy at the moment saving and rehabilitating hogs that have gotten into trouble.
