Thirsty Thursday

We were surprised to spot this Hedgehog standing on his back legs drinking copiously from Jazz’s outdoor water bowl as we prepared some lunch today.

After three very cold days I am surprised to see a hedgehog out and about as they do tend to hibernate through the winter months.

Perhaps the weather has not been consistently cold enough to send him or her off to a cosy bed in the garden.

Or perhaps this was the last big drink of water needed before heading to a winter nest.
