June 18th – I’d been alerted by the works security system in the night to movement in the yard on CCTV. When I checked it out, two large hedgehogs were courting in the back near the grass where we have a park bench and some grass for time out and the smokers. I watched them with interest as I didn’t know we had hogs at work.
Coincidentally, at work later the groundsmen came to trim the scrub back behind the premises and disturbed this young hoglet, clearly not one of the lovers from the night before.
Cat treats were sought, and the little prickly one ate a large hearty meal before retreating back to the quiet end of the scrub.
Nice to see them about considering the way the population of these charming creatures is suffering of recent years.
Drivers and workers now have signs and instructions to watch for hogs crossing!
