Hello Hedgehog!

By SocksAndStuff
A hedgehog rooting around following a little snack of cat-food and a snooze in the late September sunshine. Mostly I see them about in the evenings now, but this one was out and about, scrutinising the garden and eventually settling near to the hedgehog houses. Maybe it was a visitor waiting for a friend to wake up and come out to play. Soon little one Smile x

Aw - well spotted and caught!

My middle daughter picked one up as it was trundling along a busy road near her home this evening - She'd been told that if it was out in the day time then it must be poorly. She took it along to my vets, who very kindly took it in. They've found out it has a lung infection, they are keeping it in for the weekend then one of the vets will take it home - she already has a mum and hoglets recouperating in her garden!

A great find and capture Helen, unusually to see one in daylight. I have two that visit every evening as soon as it's dark. They love meal worms.
