Thread: Last nights dinner guests

    Last nights dinner guests

    These diners never stirred even when the flash was going of from a couple of feet away.









    Every night they are there for their feast of out of date cakes from the supermarket.

    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.

    There are Pine Martens and Hedgehogs there every night, they are right outside the lounge patio doors on the topmost of three steps. They never bat an eyelid they are quite used to people moving about in the house, the Martens don't even go far when my wife goes out to feed them. Sometimes when there are two hedgehogs there and they are squaring up to each other you can hear them grunting above the noise from the TV, then they start their pushing and shoving, its not unknown for one to knock the other off the steps completely!

    No cats in the garden, not allowed!

    No deer either, they are welcome but appear to have more sense .

    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

    Came across this little fella at the back end of the summer. Some in the family despise them for egg eating habits but this chap was the size of some eggs!

    Got to agree with some of your family members there.Bl**dy egg eating urchins but we too witnessed a decline as the badgers increased in numbers

    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.
