Home Forums Hedgehog signs and sightings Marking Hedgehogs? Reply To: Marking Hedgehogs?


I was hoping to edit my previous post, but I am not sure how.

I would also like to say, that although originally in one year, 13 different hedgehogs that I know of, came through my garden, and now there is just one regular that I see, there have been 4 new hedgehogs this year in my garden as well as two from three and two years ago. While I have read elsewhere on the forum that my little surveying will not do much for hedgehogs on a national scale (which isn’t very encouraging really) it makes me feel better to know that although the numbers are not as high as they used to be, they are far better than around 3-4 years ago, when during an entire season I only saw one hedgehog.

When I visit my RSPCA wildlife rehabilitation centre next week, I will definitely raise this question regarding this issue with hopefully someone who specialises in hedgehogs and see what they think.
