Do you have a wildlife question?
Q. What should I do if I find a Hedgehog?
A. Hedgehogs are in major decline and need all the help that they can get. This is especially the case over the winter months when they should be hibernating and are more vulnerable than usual. If you are concerned about a hedgehog then in the first instance seek advice from a specialist hedgehog rescue charity. In North Somerset this may be PRICKLES based in Cheddar and who rescue many hedgehogs throughout the year.
