I haven’t seen a hedgehog for several years.
So, when I saw one today (in broad daylight), I ran for my camera – which luckily had the telephoto lens attached.
I was able to grab a few shots without getting too close and scaring the poor dear. I didn’t want her (she was so pretty, I’m guessing she was a girl) rolling into a defensive ball.
I needn’t have worried. She seemed remarkably unconcerned by my presence. Sadly, I was at ‘my’ other garden today and not the Priory. A shame, as I would dearly love to have hedgehogs there.
Pointedly ignoring me she continued sniffing whatever it was she was sniffing
before ambling off, slowly, to where she belongs. The hedge.
