A Young Hedgehog
This curious hedgehog was spotted, with its mother, exploring the ivy beneath the yew hedge next to the Chapel Garden. They were probably looking for a new nest as their last one was disturbed during works to install a new fuel tank for the swimming pool boiler. Hedgehogs are becoming increasingly rare around the estate even though we do try to provide plenty of areas of undergrowth for them.
