This week our Hedgehog failed to visit the garden, so we hope he has left for hibernation. We have been privileged to enjoy watching this garden visitor who's species is in major decline. We hope you have enjoy watching the short video clips posted on this blog previously. He first came to the garden at the end of May, beginning of June and our garden was a part of his daily evening walk. As we head into winter we have been left with happy memories of 'hedgie' as I often watched him and can remember fondly of the night he walked head on into my moth trap with a little thud. Before heading on his way slaloming through my moth pots on the way to the water and peanuts.
