Not here, but lucky enough to watch a barn owl hunting where we stay in Norfolk. No hedgehogs here. Best sightings have been (many years ago), skylarks on our lawn, presumably looking for food after weeks of snow, and last summer, a buzzard.

With the rate that red kites are spreading, I wouldn't be surprised if one turned up in the next few years. If we buy the property that we hope to, red kites will be daily visitors.

Sounds of amorous hedgehogs in the garden last night. A bit late in the season - I worry if there are any hoglets, they may not have time to gain enough weight before winter Crying or Very sad

I don't often get excited by poo (!!) but this morning in the back garden I found hedgehog droppings. We saw a hedgehog trotting across the road when we moved in 17 years ago, but there haven't been any sightings since.

That's promising Dandelion. I've been perturbed not to find any hedgehogs in the lorry inspection pit this year - I check it every morning. There are usually a few during the summer months. I think hedgehogs, like other hibernators, May have had a hard time coming out during the warm weather in February when there was no food for them. They also have a hard time when it is very dry and the ground is hard, as it's been last year and this. They can't dig and they injure their snouts.
