Hi Mags63

Yes, people usually say they will keep a look out, but I’m not sure how carefully. I live near a railway and have on many occasions in the past contacted them when they have notified their ‘neighbours’ that they were doing vegetation clearing. They always say they will keep a look out do an ecological survey, etc. but when you see them doing the work there is no sign that they check the vegetation just before work commences. If they have done one the day before the hogs could have moved. Part of the problem is that hedgehogs are not a protected species which means they don’t have to try as hard as they would if they were protected.

But re. notification about wildlife care for strimmers, see:
