I phoned BHPS which gave me the number for hedgehog helpline, they eventually told me to release it as did the local vet. Another wildlife advisor told me it would most definitely die if left out and various websites say the same so it’s very confusing. It was dark when I found him. So not ill as far as I know, just small.
