I have logged the details of finding the dead hedgehog for this study as Nic suggested. Hopefully they will gather data over a wide area and this research will help to protect the precious hedgehog population we still have.
On a lighter note; the night before I discovered the sadly dead hog, there was a tremendous caterwauling (hedgiewauling?) in the wee small hours. What a racket!!! Was it Romeo and Juliet? Casanova and the tart who lurks under the crab apple tree? Who remembers the old joke? ‘How do hedgehogs mate? – with great care!’
I am still so sad at the loss of the precious hog but hopefully there may be new life in my garden soon.
