Thanks for the poem, although it isn’t the same one she read parts of on Springwatch, although parts of it seem familiar. I looked for that one on line but couldn’t find it. It is called The Final Hedgehog Left on Earth. It sounded as if there was going to be a whole book of hedgehog poems. Hopefully, some of them slightly more cheerful. It is worth looking at the Springwatch on iplayer if you get the chance. They visited her garden as well. She has a way of reading her poems which seems to add to them. I’d love to be that clever with words!
You are so lucky seeing a Mum and her brood. Those are the sorts of memories to cherish.
