When was the last time you saw a hedgehog? It is likely the answer was some time ago. Unfortunately the last hedgehog I saw happened to be a dead one that I found in my garden. It seems that the once common creature is becoming something of a rarity. If this article is correct they are disappearing fast. Numbers of hedgehogs have declined by a third since 2003. It’s clear we need to take measure to help hedgehogs if they are to survive. Small things you can do are to leave wild corners in your garden where hedgehogs can find prey and shelter. Leave small holes in your fence so that hedgehogs can find their way though and encourage your neighbours to do the same.
