Visitors in the Garden

We found four of these delightful little'uns taking a siesta under some bushes this afternoon... The first ones that we have seen in the Ariege.

This is great as hedgehogs are believed to be a wonderful form of natural pest control... Hopefully they will take a liking to our slugs!

Once they had awoken, they started to climb up the undergrowth on the bank at the front of the house. However, one of them decided to explore and wandered off into next doors garden... Not a great idea as their hunting dogs apparently like 'playing' with hedgehogs. Marie saved it and returned it back to us before it could come to any harm.

Anyone remember hedgehog flavoured crisps?
