It might also be worth mentioning the new Mammal Society survey which Laurence has highlighted on another post. This survey was commissioned by the governments own agency Natural England and alarmingly estimates that hedgehog numbers are now down to around 522,000, that’s 66% lower than a previous review in 1995 and almost half the current 1 million estimate which has caused so much concern.
