I was walking home last night, when my eyes picked up a dark blur of movement from the small park near my home.
I knew straightaway it was a hedgehog, it's how I spot them! The surprise was that it was so small, only a little hoglet who has presumably made it through its first winter and is now out on the prowl for food.
Hopefully I will see a lot of hedgehogs this warm season, they seem to have been doing well locally the past couple of years.
Today I went out for a very slow and gentle walk, not wishing to strain my leg, and came across various pretties on the way round, listening to Liz Kershaw's 6 music show with an interview with the always very charming Marc Almond. It was mainly grey, so no butterflies but a few bees kicking around, including the slightly tired female flower bee I've photographed below.
I was slightly tired too, when I got home so I had a bath lasting an hour!
