Hedgehog Happenings

18 Sep 2016

  On the 27th August, this poor little hedgehog was brought in found by a concerned member of the public.

Wildlife has been coming in thick and fast, well very fast indeed actually. Faster than we can cope with! These little leverets (baby hares) came in a two weeks ago.

More Hoglets Rescued

18 Jul 2014

Fox with Mange Rescued
