Our Squirrel and Hedgehog visitors.

13 comments


We haven’t seen a squirrel in the garden for 2 years until yesterday when T saw one on the bird feeder and then a hedgehog shortly after on the lawn. Sods law I was away at my daughters so I am hoping they come back tomorrow for me to see. Here’s the photo’s he took for me….

It looks like they both enjoyed the food we put out for the birds…… :o))

Lovely to see, I've seen a couple of hedgehogs this year too, hadn't seen any for years, one was huge must be the huge amount of slugs around, the squirrels are so funny aren't they just been watching one trying to climb our new bird feeder, one of those metal pole type he hasn't figured out how to get up it yet and just keeps sliding back down,lol, sure by the end of the day he'll have found a way :-)

I have never seen a hedgehog in my garden, but with regard to squirrels I can send you a dozen if you want.
I am sure they will visit you again.

How lovely, I`m pleased T took the photo`s for you, I haven`t seen a squirrel in my garden for a long time and no hedgehogs this year either but I think they are about as I have noticed their track has been used, just not been good enough for us to be outside at dusk this year, both your visitors look healthy, squirrel looks mighty pleased with his find, lol....

He got a couple of good pics for you HB - shame you missed - I do hope they come back for you.
I've never seen either a squirrel or a hedgehog in my garden - there is a family of hedgehogs (apparently) living in next door's jungle but I've never had a glimpse.
Nice to see them enjoying their goodies :)

Thanks Bloomer. We haven't seen iether of them today. We left plenty of food for them so maybe they will be back soon.
So funny Simbad I can just imagine that...
We used to have a family of 4 Costas until 2 yrs ago when they stoped coming.
Lincslass he knew I would be pleased to see them visit in the garden again.
I do hope they will come again when I can see them for myself Scottish. T gave the hedgehog some of the meat and potato pie I had left for his dinner.
he said it enjoyed the meat....(my pastry leaves something to be desired)lol

I hope they came back and you saw them. It's nice to see wild animals visit our gardens.
We don't get any squirels here, but in the previous garden there were lots. I miss them here.

Lovely photos. I know grey squirrels are supposed to be the enemy, but I confess I have a sneaking regard for them - it's not their fault! I must have read "Timmy Tiptoes" at an impressionable age. (I always think Beatrix Potter has a lot to answer for!)

Lovely to see the hedgehogs back in the gardens, squirrels we have too many unfortunately, so I will send you some HB!!

Lol Melchisedec, me too.......
The squirrel came back yesterday Dd,but no sign of the hedgehog. I wondered why we hadn't seen them for the past 2 years. Perhaps a new cat around deterring them. I'm happy with just the one for now thanks.....lol
