I saw this dear fellow going for a saunter along the drive in front of the bungalow this morning. I haven't seen one (alive) for a few years. Apparently their population is twenty five percent less than it was twenty five years a go. Modern farming methods and the use of pesticides and insecticides are said to be the cause of their decline.
The weather's been "skorchio" here in Ireland for the last few weeks. Long may it be so.
Have you seen any hedgehogs lately?
We actually sat on the patio last night looking at the bay. I had a few cans of Newcastle Brown and J had a jug of home made Sangria. It's great living on the Irish Riviera. Till it rains of course!
