Third Little Hedgehog

Following my post about autumn juveniles, I found a third hedgehog whose weight was too low to risk hibernation.Photo of little hedgehog

As the rescue couldn’t take him straight away he was here for two nights. I let him stretch his legs in a secure area, placing mealworms around for him to find. He seemed quite relaxed and exploratory for a wild animal. Being an urban hedgehog he is probably used to lights and noise. Photo of hedgehog being nosy

Once all three are fattened up they will be released and can go back to their wild ways. His bigger cousin is still chasing woodlice, but I am seeing a lot fewer hedgehogs in the garden. I assume they have started hibernating, so please check your wood piles before lighting bonfires.Photo of hedgehog chasing woodlouse
