I’ve got a friend. He’s a bit spiky and he’s very shy. Still, it’s nice to have someone pop by.
I also have pheasants – they’re very noisy – rosellas (they’re squawky but colourful), ducks (extremely noisy but quite magnificent), dozens of rabbits (that’s probably a bad thing but their little ears poking up out of the grass are very cute), friendly blackbirds (warning: don’t start feeding them or they’ll bring their friends!), and lots of natives including families of pukeko (swamp hens), slinky lizards, territorial tuis, fantails (piwakawaka) and wood pigeons (kereru), and sheep in the paddock. I’m not short of company!
But it’s the little hedgehog that stole my heart the other day. Have a watch below.
