They need all the help we can give them ....

Well, my four overwintered hedgehogs have been released and hopefully are all off somewhere fit and healthy and doing what hoggies do best ....... good luck guys!!!

I had a rescue hog brought to me last week, found lying at the edge of a field during the day (flies etc), the very kind lady brought her over and poor little hoggie spent most of the first 24 hours sound asleep.

I named her Dawn, and after recovering from her ordeal she eventually came out for something to eat and I could take a better look at her. Blood on her nose and one ear, quite muddy and dirty - suspect she may have been disturbed by a dog.

Anyway, she's slowly getting better each day eating more and look much healthier each day.

The garden's been busy, we have a Robin who visits regularly throughout the day for mealworms to feed her babies - she'll even come down onto my hand now. Also, I think she's spread the word, about the mad lady, and I also now have a lady Blackbird who visits for her regular mouth full of mealworms.

The goldfinches are nesting in the buddlei and have constructed a beautiful little nest, and I already have quite a few visiting hedgehogs.
