Prickles has not taken the food for 2 nights now, she was last seen on camera Friday night and looking fit and healthy, I can only hope she's gone a courting with that big boar and sees sense, he's only after one thing,

AW'O'L

Absent With-Out Leave

And once during the 1980s, late one afternoon, and it might have been a Saturday, two blokes took a youngish lad who they had in handcuffs, they took him from the Northwest Station and up into the centre of town, and apparently all three were going to get something to eat, and later on they returned to the station along with this young lad, who was still in handcuffs, but he was not handcuffed to the two blokes who were 'escorting' him, and some of the lads on the station who were ex army, and they said that it was obvious that it was two MP's taking a soldier back to barracks after him going AWOL.

None of them were in uniform, but this was in the time of a lot of IRA activity, after the 'Death on the Rock' documentary, and soldiers were being told not to travel in uniform, and an argument broke out between a couple of the ex-army lads on the station, because one said that they should not be parading a prisoner round whilst handcuffed and in custody, and that he should not be being transported along with the public on the train in handcuffs, and the other ex-soldier said yes they can, because the MPs could do what they wanted.

Panic over everyone , I've stood the search team down, Although I've not seen her, the food has gone last night and a sample of her DNA left behind, I'm highly delighted to say she has come back,
I was sad last night because, I waited for her to come scurrying down the garden path at dusk as normal. she did't appear, I checked out the greenhouse and shed at regular intervals, 9 pm , 10pm then a last look before bedtime at 11'30pm and no signs of her So I closed the greenhouse hatch otherwise, the birds will enter early morning and raid the food dish, Imagine my surprise this morning as I found evidence that, Prickles is alive and well and now I'm wondering,
As she found a new stomping ground or is she visiting that boar's patch for some hanky panky, maybe she's in labour and not well enough to forage as much or maybe, she fed up of a nosey old gardener keep coming round with his camera and torch snooping on her every move,

well anyways, Happy happy day
This rainy morn in May, Very Happy

As a registered hedgehog ' Champion' , thats our official name as a member of Hedgehog St, I had an email this morning saying that, There are sightings from all over the UK of hoglets and for us to be aware before moving and sheds or wood piles that may be housing the hoglets,
When I first saw Prickles in early March, I thought she was nesting under my shed but, on further investigations and surveillance with my camera, I've established that, she is not nesting in my garden but, is not far away and probably in the empty house's garden next door, that would make sense. as its quiet in there, So I may not see the hoglets if they are there,
Its all very exiting. Laughing

She might not want to live next door to a pub, which has live music Smile

There is a notice on the exit Sir Bob. It reads,  "Please be considerate, We have a hedgehog on night turn, do your talking  while you're walking, thanks for your custom, please call again "
