Hedgehog!

On Sunday evening we were preparing dinner and waiting for Jane to arrive, when I became aware of a snuffling close by the kitchen door. Investigation revealed the source to be a juvenile hedgehog, ferreting around on the edge of a flower bed. This is extremely unusual, in broad daylight. Generally hedgehogs stay well hidden during the day, only emerging at night.

The slabs you can't quite see (but on which the beastie is standing) in this movie clip overhang the edge of the bed and snails find that a good place to hang out. I hope the hedgehog ate lots of them!
