Thankyou for the link, the sound nearest to what I heard was the one listed as screaming. Neither hedgehog appeared injured and as I approached the source of the sound I could see a lot of movement in the undergrowth as well as lots of squealing. When I spotted them with my torch, they were nose to nose but neither was rolled up. I’m wondering if they were having a confrontation and was frightened, and when my light shone on them, it distracted them. I will carry on monitoring them though just in case one is poorly. We’ve never had 3 hedgehogs in the garden at the same time before as it is a small garden in an estate.
