Whilst dog-sitting Spud the Spaniel the other day, I was brought three hedgehogs, one after the other. After they were dropped at my feet, I scooped them up using a catering tin and a spatula. I felt rather like Alice in Wonderland, playing crazy golf with hedgehogs. Spud was most pleased with himself. Here’s Rowan trying not to look nervous as he is put in charge of the new Slug Management Team.
