Stocking up for winter - hedgehog

By HobbitDave
Very glad to have this little chap/chapess coming after dark nowadays. It's the first one I've seen in quite a few years here. Hopefully he/she has a mate too.
Theyll be hibernating soon.

Feed him well-- will he hibernate in your garden?

I think so, Jenn, there's an old pile of logs against a bank at the back, which would be an ideal place.

Excellent capture Dave,

We leave cat biscuits in the shed with door ajar, for our cat, the hedgehogs eat more than she does. Good to have them, but they do leave their calling card. 😩

Good to see this perky customer.
They do a fine job on the slugs at this time of year.
Nice picture.

Lovely to see this wonderful little creature Dave, I wish we could see the amount that were about when I was a kid.

Well spotted Dave - only ever seen one scurrying in a car park at local village hall.

A terrific shot and
wonder what you are feeding him/her.
We have at least one but I think they keep a low profile when the dogs are out.
