    So one of our juvenile hedgehogs that I found in the garden on Saturday and took to a lovely couple in a local rescue centre, sadly did not make it. They have said she had internal parasites and unfortunately didn’t respond to the medication. We are all so sad but feel reassured that when she was ill we were able to get her to the Rescue Centre and at least she had a chance, however slim.

    We hoped we would get Flora back and that she could rejoin the others hedgehogs that visit every night. Lets hope the other little one makes it through to hibernation.

    So please do not forget, it is not normal for a hedgehog to be out during the day, if you find one, please try and get it to a local rescue centre.

    Hi Avena

    So sorry to hear the little hog didn’t make it. But you did really well getting help for it, even if it didn’t work this time.

    You are right, it isn’t normal for hogs to be out during the day. Hoglets are particularly vulnerable, as being so tiny, any problems they get can have more impact on them.

    Fingers crossed for the other little one and all the adults, too. You never know you might even get some more little ones appearing from somewhere.

    Good luck.
