In cities in the old days it was common with so-called nightmen,
who in the shelter of darkness emptied trash cans and latrine buckets
– so that the city’s residents weren’t bothered by their own remains.
It is today set in more modern systems so it is picked up in full daylight.
But it still puzzles in the dark most often in gardens but elsewhere as well.
Could be hedgehogs in the role of waste collector and various pests too.
However, the little diligent nocturnal has faced a new serious enemy
– the modern, almost silent robotic lawnmowers,
which are deadly in the dark for hedgehogs and often surprise them.
