Hi BossHogg

Yes, I just think it’s really sad. Most of the poor hogs here seem to have some pale marks and some dark marks – possibly marked by different people – the poor things look a terrible mess. The lockdown doesn’t seem to have done them any favours in that respect, either. Usually when it rains it fades a bit, but of course it hasn’t rained for ages – here at least. But then they get re-marked – not always in the same ‘pattern’. So whoever is doing it is just as likely to be counting the same hedgehog more than once.

Oh to see a hedgehog in it’s wild natural beauty!
