a teeny baby hedgehog

after the sparrow hawk visit of last weekend, we’ve now got a teeny baby hedgehog whizzing aimlessly around our garden eating the lawn

he’s only about the size of a hamster.  and seems to have his eyes closed.

he’s very quick, but spent a lot of time going round in circles so i carefully moved him to a safer place in the undergrowth.

but an hour or so later he was back near where we started.  and a cat was sniffing round the place.  so hopefully he’ll make it !
