Are there any Tory MPs living in that village do you know? Only that looks suspiciously like a floating duck house to me.*
Two of my night-time visitors having a bit of an argument over the remains of a mealworm. I have learned that hedgehogs will do almost anything for a mealworm so I usually sprinkle a few outside the conservatory so they come close to the house where I can see them. When two arrive at once there's a lot of snorting and clicking as they circle each other, until one backs away very
carefully. The smaller of these two is about six inches long, the other maybe eight inches.
*During the MPs expenses scandal in 2009, one MP claimed over £30,000 for gardening costs at the house in his constituency, including £1,600 for a floating duck house; another claimed for clearing out his moat. Suffice it to say that duck houses and moats have become synonymous in the UK with sleaze and corruption.
