Tomorrow is the shortest day which means today was almost as short. I headed out to the garden in the dimming daylight to pick some silver beet.
I was surprised to find this hedgehog snuffling about. I offered it some of Jazz’s leftover cat food and it was very pleased to eat a portion, once I had backed a distance away.
I know why they are known as hedge-hogs now as it was a very snuffly, snorty eater with a loud chew.
There was evidence it had been rustling about in some of the heaps of dead leaves but it was no where to be seen some minutes later.
