Hi Frank H
I have been recording hedgehogs in my garden for some time and recently I caught one hedgehog happily eating at the feeding station, then a second hog came bounding round the corner at speed and they came face to face. One of the hogs literally ‘screamed’ so loudly I could not believe what it was at first and that it had indeed come from one of the hedgehogs! I had never heard them make that noise before. Both hedgehogs were fine, no buffing or rolling into a ball and I think the one that screamed was either startled or just warning the other one to back off, which it did. Neither one looked ill or poorly so I wondered if it is just a ‘frightened’ scream.
