Looking for a ray of sunshine

Hedgehog


It seems to have been an uphill struggle today. It all started last night. At 8pm the air in the garden was warm, still, humid and thick with LBAM and promise. When I put the moth trap out at 9 everything had disappeared. I only got one moth (an unidentifiable Stigmella sp.) all night, while everyone else in the county was getting lifetime results. However, Mr Hedgehog made a cameo appearance - the first we've seen in the garden for 20 years (although I did bump into one up the road a few months back). Like foxes, hedgehogs are well on the way to becoming an urban species, having been almost obliterated in the British countryside.
