On the way out last night (happy birthday Dad!) we drove past a dead hedgehog at the side of the road. A not uncommon sight, I’m sorry to say. The good news is that the body was still there today, so – naturally – I went and collected it. So, finally, I have a whole, intact hedgehog in my collection. I’ll have more news on its development into a skeletonised study specimen in months to come…
As you can see, this individual was HUGE (though not the largest hedgehog I’ve ever seen).

Finally, La Roux’s album is out. It’s soooo good.
