Friday at the Flicks - Hedgehog

Just the one silent video today. A few nights ago a Hedgehog visited just as the daylight was fading. It would appear to be a good job I hadn't cleared up all the seed the Starlings had scattered from the feeders as Spiky seemed to be enjoying the sunflower hearts. He/she had arrived just as I was about to put the dish of dried mealworms and crushed unsalted peanuts out so I waited for a while and took a few video clips.

When I went out with the dish I hoped for a few still photos but the hog made a dash for cover until it considered the coast clear before coming back to tuck in to the usual feast.

Have a great weekend observing the wildlife wherever you are.


  1. I have minimal band width but the quality is very good. Nice to see a Hedgehog.....I'm not seeing many on the road for a couple of years. Sad! They are grand little creatures.

  2. He's really tucking into that John.
    Lovely little creatures.

  3. Nice to see a hedgehog in full colour especially Spiky ;) ~ healthy looking, and no wonder the way he eats up the goodness around him :)

  4. Adrian. The colours were grainy, to be expected with low light levels.

  5. They are Keith. Always going about their lives peacefully, harming neither man nor beast - except the occasional slug and worm. Or each other at mating time lol.

  6. Glo. I should imagine they are fattening up in preparation for their Winter hibernation.


Thank you for visiting. Hope you enjoyed the pictures. Any comment, or correction to any information or identification I get wrong, is most welcome. John
