Hello little hedgehog

We spotted this little guy in the back yard today…

Dunno what he was doing out in broad daylight, but he was quite happy to sit there while I poked a camera in his face. Some quick googling suggests that because he was small he might be learning the difference between night and day – apparently coming out by day does not always equate to being sick, and this one looked fine. He scurried around the yard for a bit then disappeared, and I’m glad to say that our cat Felix wasn’t at all interested. Here’s hoping we don’t find him on the road in the morning…

    Too cute! Hedgehogs were something I was fascinated with as a toddler growing up outside Oxford. A symbol of my early childhood, they always hold a special place in my heart.
