I last saw this chap on October 10th, I saw him again yesterday morning at 5.30 am; I presume it's the same one.
It is very reassuring to see that Hedgehogs are living here again. About a week ago I disturbed another much smaller one in a nest up at the barn, when I uncovered my big pile of kindling wood (old weatherboarding planks).
Seeing as he seems to be resident very nearby, I have now made him a nest from an old broken terracotta pot, filled and covered with leaves (above). If he finds it, it will make the perfect spot for him to hibernate for the winter. Yes, I used to watch Blue Peter!
It is now well covered again (below), and I will add more leaves as they fall. Nice-n-cosy.
