I spent most of the morning with this baby hedgehog who was aware of my presence but completely unpeturbed. He foraged all over my garden which he appears o know well, apparently deliberately going off for a drink at the birds' water bath. I estimate that he is no more than 15cm from the tip of his nose to his rear. His mum has done a sterling job on the mollusc population in my garden all summer, and I have seen her and this baby several times in daylight in the last two or three weeks/ Is this unusual? It was a great way to spend my day off :-)
