Cheers Nic, yes understand about the shyness but such a contrast to the pretty one that seems to think I’m ok, toddling past me and the cats to the little pond area for dessert. I’ll keep a lookout for the hog with the iffy spines and try to photograph, and as I recall it didn’t have a visible skirt either so looked more like an armadillo/scrubbing brush combo. I didn’t notice tapered tips like the one I’m holding in photo from last week. I’m guessing that these hogs are coming at different times to see who gets to the little bowl of food first. I don’t put that much down, I see it as sustenance should they get into menu difficulties (although I add more late autumn before hibernation). I’ll update when I can on ‘Bertie Bristles’. Maybe better to post that in ‘hedgehog sightings’?
