Tiny hedgehogs may need help!
At the end of a warm summer, hedgehogs sometimes produce a family of babies born too late to fatten up in time for hibernation. These late summer/autumn hoglets are very unlikely to survive. If you have hoglets visiting your garden that weigh less than 450g, please contact us urgently for advice. We can put you in touch with a hedgehog carer who can help. Rescuing hedgehogs weighing more than 500g is unnecessary so long as adequate food is available. More information from BHPS https://www.britishhedgehogs.org.uk/…/Hibernation-Weight.pdf
