Hedgehogs at home
Apr 1, 2020 —
How are you all? I really hope that this update finds you in good health and spirits. Tomorrow is my son's 14th birthday - he is really feeling being trapped at home in our small and full house. So if you can spare a thought - send a birthday wave to Pip on 2nd April!
To hedgehogs - this is going to be a post with videos. And the first is the most practical. I am often asked whether there are commercially available gravel boards for the bottom of larch-lap fencing ... and a couple of days ago I got sent a video of one in action. The cat is definitely interested too - I wonder what the cat made of the hedgehog when it came nose-to-nose? This fence (and video) came from Fabcast - I have no relationship with them and there are other fence manufacturers out there too - but it was good to see in action. In fact - if you have found other fence companies offering this, could you share the details (for when we emerge ....) it might be better to share on the Facebook Group ... just because it is easier to communicate there.
Now for something completely different - a video I was sent that captures the inventive response to these corona-times ... the delightful multi-talented musician Yshani Perinpanayagam created a mini-piece of music called .... The Hedgehog. She sent the individual parts to 9 of her friends along with a click track - and got them to play - not knowing what the whole would sound like ... here is the end result!
And finally - after the first video diary I did with my wife got such an amazing reaction - we have continued - here they are - Day 2 - Day 3 - Day 4 - Day 5 - Day 6 - Day 7 - Day 8 ... so far. Oh - there is no advertising on my wife's YouTube channel, this is NOT an attempt to try and drum up revenue - it is purely a way of sharing the way we are coping with the current climate (I often get snarky comments for sharing such things).
The photo is of a rescue hog, it was evening (but still light) and was about to be released into the wild ... and that is Pip! Keep well - stay home - and dream of hedgehogs!
