I couldn't resist these gorgeous pictures of hedgehogs having baths. It might be cold and dark, and Christmas is coming at me far too fast and I'm not ready for it, but I can't help feeling happy when I'm looking at these cute creatures.
Edited to add this contribution from Richard (see comments below):
For anybody who's interested in hedgehog rescue, and also how best to care for wild hedgehogs that live in and around your garden, a friend of FH and myself runs a hedgehog rescue centre - and it has a website:
The site is well worth exploring, because there's a lot to learn - and Derek is very approachable if you have any questions that aren't covered.
