Was just taking myself and my bike and my bed to bed last night when silhouetted against the sodium streetlit entrance to my drive, a small dark shape scuttle across the orange glow.
Obviously I knew what it was, but not how little it was. It was a half size hedgehog, a hoglet, out for an evening snuffle amid the leaves, only it was heading towards the road, pumped up on its little suspension like an old Citroen.
I headed it off, and it shot off surprisingly quickly to the shelter of the wall by the old Church next door. It was a shy little hoglet, and it decided to keep its face hidden while I took a couple of quick shots before leaving it be.
There was no casualty on the road this morning, so I'm hoping it was OK.
