I just wanted to let you know that our little hedgehog is clearly some sort of super-hedgehog: late last night he appeared on our patio, in his usual spot. We don’t know for sure how he escaped from the lower part of the garden – maybe he used the little ramp we set up, or perhaps he went under the fence to get next door using the little secret tunnel we dug.
Whatever he did, he’s clearly very clever. On the two nights following the incident with the fox, we went and sat out in the garden in the dark to listen and watch out for him, but there was no sign of him. And then he just turned up as though nothing had happened. Hedgehogs, eh!
I’m still going to worry about him of course, but I am dialling it back a bit. Which is good news for everyone.
