Oh, so cute!
Yes, he was just a baby
I just love these little critters.
How fabulous, it was worth moving all those rocks just for that wonderful shot!
We saw him elsewhere in the garden the day after, unless it was his brother or sister!
Fantastic! It is a while since I’ve seen one here.
I have seen or heard the parent a few times this year, but haven’t seen a young hedgehog for a while. I am sure the family is doing a good job with the slugs 🙂
You are lucky, I haven’ t seen one for years. I always love your titles
Thanks Chloris – I hear them more than see them, but I knew we had at least one although this was only a young ‘un and still naive enough not to be bothered by an approachng human. I found him down by the gate the day after so moved him to the woodland just in case he was thinking of leaving…!
What a surprise! Very cute, but I don’t think I would want to get too close.
They are harmless to us, Marion, although they might carry fleas. I picked this ine up with a towel the day after and moved him into the woodland as he was wandering away from the garden
That’s a nice sight to have!
It is indeed – I don’t know how many there are in a typical hedgehog ‘litter’, or how long they stay around the area they were born in, but I have been aware of the presence of hedgehogs in the garden for a few years although I haven’t seen a young one for a while
Such fun, such a cute little guy.
So cute! You don’t find these in California!
Yes, a young one is especially cute!
What a cute creature. I have always wanted to see one in person.
I feel privileged to be able to host hedgehogs in our garden, Lisa
Is it a hedgehog or a porcupine. Oops…my ignorance is showing. Mighty cute, whatever.
A hedgehog, rickii, and a young one at that – no more than 6″ long
Exciting! What a welcome visitor – and you managed to get a great photo.
Thanks Sandra – this one was actually through the window but I went outside and took some more closer up, but he had moved away from the wall and I would have lost my title…!
Great to see one in the garden.
Oh most definitely – and I didn’t even need to put out a ‘Welcome Hedgehogs’ sign!
I’m sure they can do some damage in a garden but I can’t help but feel I’d like to find one residing in mine! I know nothing of their habits. But sure is cute! 🙂
Oh no damage at all, Debra – and they eat slugs so on the contrary are very welcome in our gardens. Numbers have dropped in the UK so they are to be encouraged
Aaaaw! I haven’t seen one in years!
What a fine hedgie pig – it’s been a while since we’ve seen on in the garden 😦
I feel privileged to have what I think are residents
Oh look at that cutey! Adorable. Great shot.
