I set up cameras in my yard to watch hedgehogs – I was shocked to see they were “always around”.
NATURE lover Sophie Jones set up a camera to watch hedgehogs – and was shocked by their non-stop banging.
Sophie was amazed to see the regular visitors to her garden “always there” when she watched videos from her doorbell recorder.
And she’s reached for earplugs at night as the prickly sex layers make such a noise that it keeps her awake.
Sophie, the director of a robotics company, said: “They’re usually cute and sweet.
“I have five in my garden.
“I saw a hedgehog running around bullying the rest of the hedgehogs.
“Then I realized they were all having sex with each other.
“Just in time for spring, these wild, horny hedgehogs are suddenly out and about in my garden.
“It’s like hedgehog porn here.
“They were so loud they kept me up at night.”
Hedgehogs usually mate between April and September but are most active in May and June.
Sophie, 35, from Plymouth, says the biggest hedgehog – which she first thought was a badger – is the “lead man” in the animal orgy.
She said: “I’m single so I don’t get any myself but all these wild animals around me are!”
