I know its been a couple of weeks

Hay Guys! I know it's been a couple of weeks since I last hopped by to say hello but Mum took me on a road trip and then we had some bad storms. The Hedgehogs needed taking care of and we had an uninvited visitor turn up in the shape of a lone rat ,but he stopped coming again....seems he or she is afraid of the hedgehogs and mum had to clean up some mess made by the birds so all that kind of made the uninvited guest feel more than unwelcomed so no more visits. But we have some new guests at the Hotel Speedy for Hedgehogs. One of our regular big ones must of had some Hoglets sometime around the end of august beginning of september and with the bad storms last weekend she decided to move them to our garden to get ready for winter. But who would blame her for doing that I mean with 3 nice nest boxes to sleep in and a nice restaurant to dine in and the greenhouse to if they want it as well? So we have mum and 2 hoglets. The hoglets are sleeping in their own boxes though sometimes one will go in with mum and sometimes mum goes in with them just to check on them and they are hunting and feeding on their own so they are at that age where they aren't dependant on mum any more and living their own lives. The hoglets are Autumn Juveniles and around 350 grams they need to get up to around 500 grams over the next week or 2 to stand a chance of getting up to the ideal minimum hibernation weight of 600 grams. The trail camera is going out every night so we can keep a close watch on them so if they need help mummy can bring them in and pack them off to rescue if its needed. But with the food on offer and that they are finding their own food in the garden as well they should do alright....So I guess you want to see the Babies?

So their they are.The Hoglets have been here just over a week and they have grown a bit so keep your paws crossed the they continue to do well.

Now on to my road trip this is me settled in at my vacation digs nr Perranporth

 Then the next day we all went shopping in Newquay and stopped at this great park
