    We have quite a few visitors to our feeding station, but on Saturday I went down to do some maintenance and there was a hedgehog lying very still on its side. We found a deep box and brought it inside whilst we made numerous calls to hedgehog rescues centres. Only one lady answered our calls after two hours of trying, but she was full and sadly she told us that most places are full which is why they are not answering their phones. In desperation we then made a 100 mile round trip to Tiggywinkles near Aylesbury, they are open 24/7. We dropped “him” off about 10pm at night, they run a superb rehabilitation centre so our thanks go to them. Not the best way to spend a Saturday evening, but knowing we have potentially saved this hog makes it all worthwhile.

    Hi KateP
    It is so nice to hear someone is prepared to go to so much trouble. I hope the hedgehog does ok.


    Update… Tiggywinkles have confirmed the hedgehog had lungworm which explains why it was out during the day. But to our surprise they confirmed that “he” had given birth to hoglets! Not sure how many, but we take some comfort that we have saved more than just “Mum”.

    Wow! That’s brilliant. It’s early for hoglets too. Well worth the trip. Will you get them back eventually to release in your garden?


    Wow, that’s a great story. Hope you get them back to release in your garden.
