Been feeding hedgehogs for more than three years and over the past few nights have seen two big ones visiting the feeding house. Just after 5pm tonight, saw a small, I think juvenile, limping, staggering around and snuffling. Got hold and have it in a box inside with some juicy meaty dog food (normally feed dried cat biscuits) and water. It has eaten, but not drunk yet. Will keep it safe and warm overnight and try to find a vet or wildlife place to get help in the morning. It’s about 6inches long so not sure if it big enough to survive the winter.
