Catching Lindy the Hedgehog on Camera

Vlog: Catching Lindy the rescue hedgehog on the wildlife cam

I’m very excited to post my very first vlog. I bought myself a (bright pink) selfie stick especially recording vlogs for The Thrifty Magpies Nest and for recording ‘how to’ posts for SocialRocks, my social media consultancy business.

In this vlog I visit Magnus the magpie and collect the wildlife camera to check whether it has captured any footage of Lindy the rescue hedgehog who is currently acclimatising to the outside in the aviary before being released.

Oh, and why does YouTube always insist on giving you a choice of three video thumbnails that are all so unflattering?

I’d love to hear what you think of my first video in the comments here or on YouTube. Thanks!

  • I'm new to your blog (found you via twitter, I follow you there and then found my way to the blog!). I really enjoyed your first vlog – great job! Hopefully Magnus will soon get used to the selfie stick!

  • How fabulous! You come across so well and I didn't realise just how much hedgehog populations had dropped! You have a freaking awesome life btw <3

  • It's nice to see you move and speak. Pity Magnus was (predictably) not wanting to play today. I saw a squashed willy wagtail in town today, that made me sad.

  • Oh you are lovely and so enjoyed the vlog. Please do more . I so enjoy seeing more of where you live. I'm Australian and I enjoy seeing other parts of the world. Lovely to see Magnus and I would worry also about Lindy. Here I see way too many creatures killed on the road , always deeply upsetting.

  • Awww, always lovely to see Magnus – he's stunning! And it's great to hear that Lindy is doing so well too – the wildlife cam is so cool. I always get upset when I see dead animals on the roads too, it's always frightening. Last week I saw a red squirrel on the roadside and it's always upsetting so I know how you feel. – Tasha
