Road Hog

We haven't seen a hedgehog around where I live for quite some time, so it was a pleasure to find one a couple of days ago patrolling the lane near our house.

Nothing was getting in it's way, not even the neighbours cat.

We watched it to make sure it got safely into a garden and away from the lane.  I really hope I see it again soon.


  1. they are such cute critters! love how it doesn't even get phased by the cat. i like the bird song in the background. (your european blackbird, i think?)

  2. Brilliant Findlay... it's been a couple of years since I had one in my garden.

  3. Only seen one dead one in all the countryside driving we've done this week and that was in suburban Wolverhampton - where are they all??? Don't like to see them dead on the road but the lack of them is very worrying!



  4. Its been a very long time since I saw one of these - that last one I saw was flat in New Zealand!

    I do believe you may be biassed about hair colour!

  5. great video. I haven't seen one in my area for years unfortunately

  6. The cat looked somewhat bemused by the hog. I did have one under my garage once but haven't seen it or any other hog for ages now around where I live sadly.

  7. I have about 20 living together in my garden, lovely animals.
