Shooting video allowed me to get even closer due to the higher shutter speed..."What's that noise?..."
Snuffling sounds, rustling and now loud squeals! The cat streaks past me, looking very concerned. I quickly unscrewed the camera from its tripod and rushed up the garden...
To my surprise, all this commotion was being caused by hedgehogs!
Normally quiet and placid, these little chaps were having a real fight.
I'm not familiar with the rules of hedgehog fighting, but it seems to be, run in circles and try to bite your oppositions nose off!
