Humping hedgehogs!

So, you know that old joke about How do hedgehogs make love? Well, this evening there were a pair of them in my garden doing just that, and I can report that they don't appear to mind about the prickles. They were quite noisy, too (obviously not reminding me of anyone I know). I've always been curious about what sounds hedgehogs make, but I don't know if this sound, somewhere between a squeak and a grunt really, was their normal sound or related to that particular activity.

I would normally ask permission before watching, but, well, they chose the spot right outside my window (if I had been prudishly inclined, I could easily have thrown cold water over them, they were that close). And besides, they're hedgehogs.
