Hedgehog tales – Part I. A true story.

The last few weeks there has been a baby hedgehog snuffling around my garden. Yesterday however he stopped his snuffling and curled up in a ball…and stayed that way in the pouring rain. Having consulted the RSPCA about hedgehog behaviour they assured me that was not typical, so this morning found me making a trip to the local vets with a sleeping baby hedgehog in a shoe box.

Apparently he’s not the only one they’ve received and they think he’s just dehydrated and lost his mum. Hopefully all will be well and I’ll be able to pick him up in a few days. Here’s a photo of him when he was a little chirpier a few days ago…
