Just now there was GREAT excitement in our house as, while we were watching tv I noticed a hedgehog toddling past the back windows. It wandered around the back yard, going all the way into the back weeds and then disappeared around the house. I got a picture and it made me think "I know I'll do a blog post with the pictures I've taken of wildlife in our back yard".
And this is it.
The MOST AMAZING animal I have had visit (but I didn't get a picture because it was over in such a flash) was when I was clearing the pond and the heron was standing RIGHT behind me, and then took off past my right ear, across the pond, banked and back past me again. I am SUCH a huge fan of herons so this was a pretty awesome experience for me.
So yeah, short update - I hope you like these pictures :)
