My sincerest apologies for being incommunicado for the past few months. My promised updates on Milligan’s progress have been waylaid as I have had some much needed rest to recover from a chest infection. I’m back, fighting fit and can tell you that Milligan is happy and well.
He is now a grand 780g.
Unfortunately, he got to the 600g, safe hibernation weight, at the beginning of November. Just a bit too late to let him make his own nest in the cold winter air out in the wild.
He was one hedgehog that wasn’t near a bonfire on fireworks night.
I have plenty of little tales of hedgehog observation to tell. I will tell them retrospectively over the coming weeks. But for now, I’ll leave you with a picture of a blissed out hog.
