According to a survey published by the RSPB hedgehogs are spotted in 25% of UK gardens. The survey counted the number of birds and mammals in 70,000 gardens in June. Almost 30% of those who took part had seen hedgehogs in their gardens before. In rural areas almost half of people has seen hedgehogs in their gardens. The most frequent visitor to UK gardens is still the blackbird but other creatures such as roe deer and moles were also reported. It just goes to show how important the garden is for wildlife. I am yet to see a hedgehog in mine but we have a large population of foxes, and birds including woodpeckers, jays, blackbirds, a sparrow hawk, collared doves, robins and crows, just to name a few.
