Hedgehog love

Sometimes we can get sucked into the mindset that only the rare or hard to find creatures are worthy of our appreciation. I'm as guilty as any in this regard, see my Sound of Otters blog entry. I do have a soft spot for hedgehogs though. I love seeing one trundling along. There used to be one at The Tranquil Otter who I could watch walking along the decking on his rounds. Hedgehogs can walk up to two miles a night fact-fans. I learnt that factoid from the British Hedgehog Website. That's a lot of walking considering how short their legs are. Mark tells me I should credit him more when I use one of his photographs. See mate, you can photograph stuff that isn't a sheep.
