My First Hedgehog

The Hedgehog

I have pretty much seen most of the native animals of the British Isles in the wild. The only one that had escaped my sight was the hedgehog. For 12 years I had not seen one - that is, until last Saturday morning, driving home from work when one was crossing the road. I nearly hit it, but I did see it.

I was so chuffed. I have finally seen my first hedgehog.

hedgehogs are amazing~i am so glad you have finally seen one! being in the middle of nowhere we get lots here, they especially like to hibernate in our old brick and flint lean-to.

Oooooh. I'm jealous now, SD.

We have a lot of hedgerows where I live, surrounded by farmland. Badger, foxes, rabbits and the odd deer we have, but no hedghogs. I gather they are quite shy?
