Hamworthy Hedgehog Rescue

Garden Feeding Stations

We maintain several feeding stations for hedgehogs in our garden as we get so many of them visiting, probably because at the bottom of our garden is Lytchett Bay nature reserve, a SSSI.

We found several autumn juveniles in the garden, or out on the nature reserve, that were too small for hibernation, so have had them over wintering. These all get released out the back, so it’s nice to be able to see them still around.

Please help hedgehogs that are emerging from hibernation by leaving out wet or dry cat food and a shallow dish of water. Many will be dehydrated and hungry after their hibernation.

Missing foot!

We have another victim of entrapment/constriction injury.

This hog was seen on cctv playback, and noticed there was something wrong with its back left leg.

We were sent the video by Neil, who told us that he would try and catch the hog that night, which luckily he was able to do, and we collected it straight away.
