Hey everyone. Had a great night watching fireworks with my family and I'm glad the Starling Firework Formation team went down well.
As a lot of people including the RSPB were trying to make everyone check their bonfires for hedgehogs I thought I'd tell you about a hedgehog I met.
|Prickles (Erinaceus europaeus)|
|Me (Homo sapiens) & Prickles|
Eventually he got big enough and heavy enough to have a chance of looking after himself. We built a hedgehog shelter in the garden and set him free there. He hung around there quite happy and hibernated there over the winter. We put bits of food out now and again to help him along. There's lots of hedgehogs around now, my Dad saw three in the garden at once, so I like to think that Prickles moved on and had his own family.
There's a great website all about hedgehogs by britishhedgehogs.org.uk which tells you loads of useful things about these lovely little creatures.
