Hi Nic

Although they are small definitely not thin they look healthy I think there are 2 maybe 3 of them but they seem to have ticks, one more than the other (its difficult to tell on camera) so I have got my tick remover handy and will try and catch them to sort them out. They are coming every night now I have had a camera rigged up all winter and yes I know winter is not over but I have several hedgehog homes which they can shuffle back too, including 4 made homes and 3 wood piles. The adults in my garden are still asleep.
I have the phone number from the vets of someone who takes in hedgehogs and in an emergency I will contact her but I understand a lot of these lovely people are overrun with hedgehogs and I like to try not interfere with nature just give it a helping hand.
