Great pictures it must be great also having such visitors!
Attachment 32738I also have a few Miss Tiggy Winkels visit me now and again and I have noticed that when I shine the torch on them, they just look at you and freeze.
I have held the torch on them for a few minutes and when they realise that is all that is going to happen, they just toddle off to the nearest bush.
When I was a young lad I can always remember hedgehogs used to roll up in a ball as soon as you looked at them.
I am very lucky as I usually have a look around my 'postage stamp' sized garden just before I go to bed and usually there are toads, one rather large spotted and covered in warts and a smaller one that is just yellow and smooth, Hedgehogs, a largish one and a small 'tennis ball' size one.
The only thing I do not welcome in my garden are cats and I think they know it as they run as soon as the security light goes on.

Amazing jayB, must be truely rewarding watching them...
Im frequently visited by deer, feral cats and my hrns
No cats in the garden, not allowed!
No deer either, they are welcome but appear to have more sense .
A clever man knows his strengths, a wise man knows his weaknesses
nice to see havn,t seen any hedgehogs around here for a long time
perhaps to many brocks me thinks tho Im sure the antis would disagree
Lovely pics and nice to see each night.
On the noise Hedgehogs make...when i was younger,well a lot younger,i heard such a commotion and went to investigate.Because of the noise i tentatively approached some bushes expecting something rather large and was amazed to find 2 Hedgehogs going at it err rather passionately so left them in peace
Another occasion was a Hedgehog caught on some barbed wire running below a fence,duly freed it but the volume they create is impressive for their size.
Thanks for sharing the pictures
Well my border is obsessed with a hedgehog that comes into my garden. He can't work out what to do with it. He tries digging under it pawing it and then just barks at it. Been a right pain last thing at night when I just want him to sort himself out before bed.
