Everybody loves a hedgehog but they are becoming quite rare now. When I was young I used to see them regularly in all sorts of places.

Now they are quite hard to find but we do have a couple that frequent our garden. There are plenty of worms, smails, slugs etc. for them and we have gaps in the fences so that they can wander widely.

The worst experience I had with these cute creatures was when one was eaten by a badger on our lawn. We had to lie in bed listenening to the hog squeal whilst the badger killed it. In the morning all I could find was spines.
