Hi Sandown, how did the course go? I’ve decided not to go on one yet – but might do in the future.

I know a few of us on here are probably thinking about doing it too, and would like to know how you got on.

The hedgehog rescue centre, looking after Sweetpea and Calvin, also realised a good lot last week, but she said on her facebook ‘this is probably the last release of 2019, so felt a bit disheartened to find out that Sweetpea won’t be getting released yet (initially she said it might be a matter of just 3 weeks).

I don’t want to pester her though. But I guess, she’s in the best care, and I trust them completely, but wonder if there;s been further complications with Sweetpea. Sweetpea was 380g a couple of weeks ago when I initally weighed her, and gave the rescue centre a poo sample, it came back as lungworm . Within the 4 days I looked after she put on 77g, and was going to get released back in the wild, but due to her sample, they ended up taking her in.

I think I’ve just got the two (perhaps three) juveniles that are eating all the food now. I’ve not weighed them, but I think they are out of the woods.
