Day 70/183: Hedgehog has a scratch, falls over

[YouTube video, 00:19 long, infrared capture of hedgehog]

Last week, I remembered that we still have a motion-triggered video camera, which was gathering dust in the bloke's office. Figuring that our hedgehog was probably awake now, I dug it out, replaced the batteries - it takes eight AAs and it munches through them at a rate of knots - and asked the children to choose a place to put it.

We tried it up by the playhouse at first, as we're pretty certain the hedgehog hibernates and lives either under it or very near it. That didn't net us any footage, so we moved it to point at the ground beneath the bird feeders. Bingo! Hedgie every night. We have a lot of clips now, which I want to stitch together over the bank holiday weekend, but for now, please enjoy this little gem. Poor Mr Snuffles has got an itch that needs scratching.
