Last night’s surprise visitor was a rather chubby hedgehog (jeż). It is a bit hard to spot him in this photo but he’s the grey spiky thing in the middle.
I heard a fairly loud rustling in the bushes but couldn’t see what was making it. Arming myself with a torch, camera and wife we set off in search of the culprit and soon found him heading across a grassy patch at what seemed like a pretty good lick. Before I had a chance to take a shot he had hidden himself at the base of a conifer.
I’m sure he’ll be back.
