New mums

We have two more new mums, with both appearing to have two hoglets each.

We have been able to grab a couple of photos of Pansy’s babies, as she is very laid back and easygoing – plus we distracted her with a big bowl of food.

She is in one of the large rabbit hutches, and as you can see in the photos, has made a nice nest in the back corner.

We have had excellent success with hoglets this year, and are looking forwards to being able to release them all back where they belong, and increase the local hedgehog population.
