    Just to let you all know the hedgehogs are beginning to come out of hibernation. Because the weather is going to get warmer this week I thought it might trigger the hedgehogs to wake up. I put the camera on and put some more food out and sure enough we had a visit. I weighed it checked it over and released it back to the feeding station where it happily ate for a few more minutes before scurrying off into the night. It had no ticks and weighed 540g which is a bit on the light side but I was happy with it. I rescued 4 in September whose average weight was 270g. After treatment for ringworm, fluke, ticks, fleas and a waterborne parasite 3 were released before the cold weather came in unfortunately one didn’t make it. The winter before I successfully overwintered 4 before release. These are all hedgehogs that come to my feeding station.


    Great story, by the way, how did you organize that feeding station?
