I was really scared, and happy to manage without spoiling the filming.
My first memory of hedgehogs before dark was as a child sitting in a sunchair in the afternoon. A hedgehog slowly walked and then the last bit rushed and tried to kill and eat my indextoe, probably without realising the attatchement to the toe.
Probably one reason is the very light summer nights. In the middle of the summer it doesn’t really get dark.
Maybe another reason is that they get fed and are not so afraid of people. I’ve seen tree hedgehogs simultaneously in the playground where there is almost no shelter.
We had many hedgehogs maybe ten hears ago and now the two last years. I have friends coming here for a 300 metres of hedgehogsafari. I think there were more this year than 2016.
I have filmed everything but the hunting hoglet with a ordinary cellphone. Sometimes with a selfiestick that allows for smother movement.
I’m so happy to have them here. People have asked me to tell children to be nice to them so last year I sometimes caught and lifted them to let children be close to them without. I tell them (with very little luck) how to behave around them. With one child at a time it can be possible to feed a hedgehog.
