Forty minutes later there were two more. At first the second one lay down a few metres away and just watched. I presume the first one is the dominant animal.
They obviously are prepared to put up with each other but there is some competition for access to the peanuts.
These two eventually disappeared and a fourth one arrived at around 11.15pm, to be joined by a dinner guest. The fox is wary of getting too close to the hedgehog.
You can clearly see on this clip that the fox is injured. It has a limp and a painful swollen right lower leg. I reckon I have seen this one around for several weeks now.
If the fox gets too close the hedgehog flinches but doesn't retreat.
Eventually the hedgehog has had enough (of the food or the fox) and leaves.
Later still, around 2.30am, a fifth fox arrived. It was thinner, and presumably younger, but there wasn't much food left.
It was reduced to catching worms on the lawn (and slurping them down like spaghetti).
