Harry and Henrietta the Hoglets
Its not all just about great adventurous activities and camping here, we also have a passion to take care of our wildlife. Over the years we have seen muntjacs, badgers, ducks, shrews, squirrels and a wide variety of birds. Today we found two Hoglets that clearly needed some support. If you see a Hedgehog in the day this time of year, it means they are in need of help as Hedgehogs are nocturnal animals. The little ones ( Hoglets ) should be fattening up in readiness for hibernation. We put on our gardening gloves and carefully put them in a clean cardboard box with plenty of leaves for warmth ( if you don’t have leaves, use an old towel) . Our local Hedgehog sanctuary is now looking after them and next year we will hopefully have them back. We will keep you posted on how the duo are getting on.
How to have a happy hedgehog;
With bonfire night coming soon, please check no hedgehogs are hiding in any pre built bonfires.
If you find one in the day, do the same as we’ve done.
Don’t give them any milk as it will give them a poorly tummy, they much prefer water.
