one evening ,the night before refuse collection i had a sack outside in the back yard,
when i went out for a cigarette i could here it rustling there was something moving inside it,
so being brave i got a long stick and proceeded to poke and whack the sack for a while 'til it stopped moving.
i left it as i didnt want to see what was in it.
a while later i go out for another cigarette only to see a hedgehog trying to get up the short steps from the bin area.
it seemed ok so i put a bucket over it tipped it up with the hedgehog inside and carried it down the country lane adjacent to our house.
set it free and apologised to mr hedgehog only to find him trying it again the following night.
the bin sacks no longer go out until the pick up day now.
and mr hedgehog hasnt been back.
