Just go up to it, when he/she reappears, and usually, they will go still and put their spikes up – then with one hand , gently put it under the hedgehog and lift him/her gently into a box with a towel in.

They are easy to lift up, sometimes they might run away, but usually, they will go still . Make sure you wear gardening gloves to protect your hands from the spikes.
