Put some cat food out...
« on: Apr 17, 17, 08:44 PM »
...coz our hedgehogs have come out of hibernation and they're VERY hungry!

They seem to have got used to me, coz they don't freeze, when I go up to them which is kinda groovy. :)

They seem to like bread, too, which surprised me, a bit.

Lovely to have those special visitors in your garden, & they trust you.  :)

I have some of the birds eating from my hand! Magpies and collared doves, mainly. But, the local robin does, too, along with some gold coloured things which I haven't identified, as yet. :)

The squirrels seem to think we're their local pantry.

We have Magpies that eat out of our hands too, & mudlarks which are a little more timid, also lorikeets etc.,
we also seem to have neighbours cats dropping in for snacks & company.  ;D

Have a little frog in the garden also that I leave a bowl of water for.  ;D

We get frogs, occasionally. Heaven knows where they come from, coz there's nothing pond-like, here. Used to get them a lot, in Essex, coz we had a big pond.

The only pond life, now, is in government. Heaven help us, if they get in for another term...

We have cut holes in the bottom of our fence to hopefully let hedgehogs in, but the wildlife camera only shows cats. We do have some amphibians in the garden, likely to be both frogs and toads, come across adults from time to time and we have tadpoles in the main fishpond. We moved some tadpoles to the newest pond which will be for wildlife only, no fish.

We thought it was raining frogs one year as there were dead ones in the garden, but think birds may have dropped them as there's a creek about 100 yards away.  :)

Heck!

We should be OK for hedgies, this year, as they were at it, just now. They're not quiet at their lovemaking, are they?

 ;D

The bats are flying around the house, too, tonight. Spring has sprung.

Pity the weather's going to go all shite, again, over the next few days. They've even forecast snow, in Scotland.

We just had a blast of winter with flooding at the station underpass & snow on the hills;
the possums are relining their nests.

I can't say it's very spring-like, here. Snow in Scotland and scraping ice off their cars, dahn sarf.

Sure been bloody cold, over the last few days. Supposed to improve, later in the week, which I'll believe when I see.

After a prolonged summer it feels like we're straight into winter.

But a pair of confused kangaroos must think differently as they were having it off in the middle of the road in an outer suburb holding up traffic.  :gig:

Maybe they were trying to keep warm...

Imagine only ever being able to have it off, in certain temperatures!

Not me. I'm like the Martini guy, in that.

Silly slogan, that, though, "Any place" and "anywhere" mean the same thing, after all.

We seem to have tame hedgehogs. :)

I've been putting food out, every evening.

Tonight, there they were, with their noses in the bowl, waiting for me!

I've got one of those motion sensor lights, on the shed. So, when they turn up, they get the light and we can see that there's something there.

Lulu, our kitten, goes mental. :)

My neighbour has a sensor light that her cat sets off at night when he wants to come in;
if we had one it would be going on & off all night with the possums on our power line.

Lulu must hate intruders in her territory.  ;D

As she's so young, she either wants to play with things she finds, or kill them. Fortunately, all she's brought in, thus far, is a leaf. :)

She was so proud of that leaf, you know. :)

She stalked a jackdaw, today, before realising it was twice her size!

A tactical withdrawal ensued. :)

Not too well, though. She's allergic to stings, as we found out, last year. She still swats at wasps and bees...

Not so energetically, though, which is summat.

I'm becoming allergic to going into hospital and having weird things shoved up my bum...

You just follow her around & tell her 'Ouch' when she approaches them.  ;D

You should read Baron's joke about colonoscopies.  ;D
