It has very much felt like Spring here in Paris this week, lovely warm weather. The hedgehog house doesn’t yet have a permanent tenant but it is getting regular use as a stop over point for a quick nap. An example from this week is shown below.
I also captured on camera would could be an aborted, but attempted, mating.
The female, I assume that it is a female is much, much smaller than the male. Perhaps it wasn’t ready or mature enough to mate but it is an indication that the mating activity, at least in these parts, is well underway.
