After seeing this poor little bugger http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-norfolk-18195580 I realised that I have not seen a hedgehog for about 20 years. Maybe living in London isn't the best for them - are they still around in Northampton? When I was a kid in Kingsthorpe they were always wandering around the garden, and trying to kill themselves on the Welford Road...

I know my mum has loads in her garden and she actively encourages them to keep the slugs and snails off her veggy patch.

Since they demolished the old Princess Marina staff accomodation, badgers have been paying a visit to my mums garden. By all accounts, they are playing havoc with the hardy perennials.

Still quite a few around but their numbers are dwindling because of continued urbanisation, habitat loss and people running them over! I used to see them all the time myself.

I never knew they shopped at habitat

Apparently their skin is so tough that when squashed their innards always come out the mouth and arse?

Do gypsies and Posh fans still eat them by baking in mud?

I had to self pollinate my butternut squash last year with a soft paintbrush due to a lack of bees. Made me feel slightly dirty

Also good for sticking cheese and pineapple chunks on at parties. They eventually make their way around the guests allowing you to do away with those expensive hors d’oeurve waiters. Also works well for cocktail sausages, although I am a caviar man myself naturally.

If you shove a stick up a hedgehog's árse you can use it to get those stubborn stains of the pan after a night on the Guinness and curry.
