If you’re doing work in your garden, you’ll need to be careful not to disturb any sleeping Hedgehogs. Unfortunately, many accidents occur as a result of strimming, forking, raking and other garden tasks.
If you’re tidying your garden, be careful before raking up any piles of leaves or long grass where a Hedgehog might be hiding.
The Winter months are great for fertilizing your garden in preparation for next year’s growing season. But be careful when digging into your compost heaps, another favourite hidy hole for our spikey friends.
Lastly, be careful before lighting bonfires and make sure you check there are no hedgehogs inside. The best way of doing this is to site and build your bonfire on the day you light it. By building on a fresh site you can be sure there’s no wildlife underneath.
