He is back!!!
We saw him in the feeding station Saturday morning then he went to his hog house. Last night he was very active in the garden going to the feeding station several times in the night. Finally at about 3 am going to bed no doubt for a well earned rest, i would love to know just where they go!! Tonight he cam out of the house had a bit of a furkle about dragged some fresh hay around and….hasn’t been out again yet. The scratching routine we have observed seems to be a form of hedgehog ablutions. He/sh methodically scratches the length of his/her body right up to the ears, then kind of twists his spines side to side so he can have a wash and brush up of his uppermost side. It takes him a good ten to fifteen minutes, then he’s off foraging. Happy days
