I wonder if it is possible to get bored with the UK’s favourite wild mammal? I certainly don’t! As hedgehogs hibernate during winter and are nocturnal, I feel I need to make the most of the short summer nights. There is just enough light left, when they first rouse themselves, to be able to take photos and video without annoying them with artificial light.
Here is one of the three hoglets. As it is growing it is taking on that pleasing and distinctively hoggy roundness. It will need to get good and fat ready for hibernation. If you have seven and a half minutes spare you can watch a video of it doing its best to fatten up here.
