Good luck with starting a Hog awareness campaign in Mansfield, I am in Nottinghamshire and have been a Hedgehog Champion for a few years. And via this Forum will offer what help I can. Lots of help available on this site.
Also, please have a look at Prickly Ball Lodge ( Hog Rescue in Derby ), has a great Facebook page.
Well I’m off for a last look for what I suspect is an underweight hog that wanders through my garden….if I don’t find it this night I will try again till I find it !!! Cheers.6th November 2017 at 2:07 pm #8137
Hi Dee, thanks for the note. Are you aware of any other champions in Notts?
good look with Slim Jim7th November 2017 at 12:37 am #8146
Off the top of my head, I don’t know of any other champions in Notts, BUT don’t despair as the Forum is not always very busy at this time of the year. Still folk on here but maybe not as often or as many.
Their was a lady called Anne from Eastwood I think?????
Also a Hog Rescue Langley Mill way…..Twiggaras ???? link on Prickly Ball.
I just got my neighbours quietly on-board the hedgehog train of thought.
As for hunting Slim Jim, still hunting- OR else the Georgie Porgy I found last night has been masquerading at a cute angle in the feeding station in the hope I will put out yet more cat food!!!!
So still on the look out for possible youngsters.
Have you had many hogs this year……lost sight of some of mine at the back end of Summer, also noted their absence occurred shortly after some of them had been hideously marked with white paint or some such, by person ( s ) unknown.
If I think of any thing else will post here.7th November 2017 at 8:33 am #8149
Like Dee says, there is a lady called Anne in Eastwood who has set up a group to help our prickly friends. They have done some amazing work raising awareness and well worth talking to. They have a website called ‘NG16 Hedgehogs’ and I am sure they will be able to point you in the right direction. I am in the NG13 area so a bit too far away.
Good luck. 🙂8th November 2017 at 4:08 pm #8163
Hi Penny, thanks also
I’m going to start leafleting the neighbours and try to get a lot working together on this,
re our hogs, i’m a bit sad as we had some regular visitors last year, at least 3 individuals. But I know one was killed on the street earlier in the year, and i’ve not seen any since.
I’ll be asking the locals to report any sighting this year – hopefully will get some good news
also have a facebook group “High Oakham Hogs” – your welcome to join & post anything interesting 🙂9th November 2017 at 2:04 am #8165
I will have a look at your Facebook group; yeah it is always sad when we lose one of our regular hogs to the road.
Hope plenty of folk report local sightings to you, it is always fascinating trying to figure out where hogs come and go to…….I know they travel a good distance on their various quests!!!
Thank you Penny…..for confirming my memory of Anne, and yes she really did/does run quite a campaign raising awareness of hogs etc. I lost the ‘conversations’ she and I had on this forum when I changed my email address and then of course the website had a revamp, BUT as I recall she has a good sense of humour !!
So here’s to High Oakham Hogs !!! Oh yeah Georgie Porgy back for food tonight…..
