The Early Bird ….

As well as putting food out for the hedgehogs at night, I also put some for the birds first thing in the morning. This morning I was distracted by the striking sunrise.Photo of Sunrise

Then I heard a crunching noise and thought, funny – birds don’t usually crunch. I turned around and found this funny looking early bird getting the worm. Photo of hedgehog in dish

It is one of the three baby hedgehogs I have noticed around the garden recently. Presumably he was on his way back to bed and didn’t want to pass up this opportunity. Shortly afterwards he was still munching his way nonchanantly through the birds’ rations while 5 bemused magpies watched. I did put more out once he’d gone to bed.Photo of young hedgehog
