Wild West End

Where Wild West End found Hedgehogs

map showing hedgehogs in Wingrove and Fenham

Do you have hedgehogs near your garden? If so, make a small hole in the wall or fence around your garden so the hedgehogs can get to you, and encourage your neighbours to do the same. Hedgehogs can walk up to 1-2km a night. Also do a hedgehog risk assessment of your garden; Cover up steep drain holes which hedgehogs can fall down (you often find these where the drainpipe from your roof goes into the ground); and check that hedgehogs can get out of garden ponds. Clear away any netting as Hedeghogs can get caught up in it.
