Hedgehog Population Boom?
Greetings to everyone on this wonderful site, literally stumbled in last night for the 1st time :0)
It’s been an awful summer but every cloud (or endless clouds) has a silver lining :0)
The UK’s ‘summer’ weather this year has been perfect for slugs and snails. Indeed, I’ve spotted a slug in our garden that would have been at home in the jurassic period – it certainly would have given a T Rex a run for its money :0)
We have a pointer/collie cross dog that I walk twice a day, on the evening walks we have spotted hedgehog after hedgehog. So many in fact, that Jake (the dog) has stopped barking at them altogether. Put it this way, I wouldn’t walk around our village at night in bare feet!!!
I’m sure there has been an explosion in hedgehog numbers this year, can anyone else confirm this?
We may be hating the weather but the hedgies seem to be loving it.
PS The dog in the picture with me is our Bull Mastiff (Megan), Jake was on the beach at the time hassling seagulls.
