Rag, Tag and Bobtail

Some of us will remember this children’s TV programme. But who (or what) was Rag? Well, Rag was a Hedgehog. Hedgehogs are very important for your garden as they are nature’s pest controllers. They feast on many of the garden creatures we fight so hard to keep out of our gardens. They include worms, snails, slugs and insects. Here’s a photo of my night-time visitor who, coincidentally, also goes by the name of Rag. Take care as they may be sheltering in leaves and twigs in your garden.

Rag the Hedgehog. Tag was a Mouse and Bobtail a Rabbit.
