Return of ‘my’ #hedgehog!

 

Well, I don’t know if it’s a returning hedgeypig (my term for hedgehog!) from the ones I had last year but who cares, there are hedgeypigs back in the garden!  This is so, so important, we need to look after their dwindling numbers; everything, including us,  is part of a larger ecosystem that we need to protect.  I have provided some links below.

CONSERVATION STATUS Although still relatively common and widespread, there is now considerable evidence for a dramatic decline in recent years, with around a third of the national population lost since the millennium. Declining in both rural and urban habitats, due to a range of factors. The hedgehog is legally protected from trapping or intentional harm, but none of the legislation deals with the drivers of the decline. Hedgehog Street is the only national conservation project and focuses on making gardens hedgehog-friendly. – http://www.hedgehogstreet.org
