You might remember me talking about Mr Chuffington.
He is the young hedgehog that we adopted in the Autumn and have fed religiously over the Winter.
He is all grown up (and out!) now, the biggest hedgehog I have ever seen at first hand. Still no good photos of him, he is pretty shy, but hopefully that will change soon.
Yesterday, Mrs RC carried out her plan for his run. During the Winter, he had a rabbit house and a small area of mud that he could poop in and dig around in. He how has the run of about a quarter of our (rather small) garden. Mrs RC made an opening in his old run and put a wooden fence around the new, larger area. Last night, as it got dark, he came out to investigate. He slowly explored the perimeter, working his way around, sniffing, prodding, nosing around. Every so often he retreated back into his house (for a snack perhaps) and then returned to his exploration.
We are hoping that we will be able to get some good photos and video when he becomes bolder...
