There have been recent sightings of hedgehogs in gardens on Henbury Rise, Hightree, and Andertons Lane.
This is great news considering their drastic decline nationally.
Please continue to keep your garden hedgehog-friendly, with hedges and shrubberies where they can hunt for food, and only using pesticides and slug pellets if absolutely necessary. It's better not to use these at all, then the birds, hedgehogs, frogs and toads will keep pests at bay for you.
Hedgehogs need access between gardens, as they forage over large distances in a night, and a log pile or other warm safe place to sleep during the day, and where they can hibernate in winter.
Hopefully our long warm spell will have given them plenty of opportunity to fatten up for hibernation this year. Please let HenburyOnline know if you see or hear a snuffling hedgehog, in your garden, or any other interesting wildlife.
