Hedgehogs are in decline. When did you last see one in your garden?

I am surprised that many people have never seen a living hedgehog. Road kill hedgehogs yes, but not living ones.. Why is this? They are declining. I don’t see as many dead on the roads as I used to do. Jan 2016 I saw 2 dead ones in the road, probably because of the mild winter, they woke up and went in search of scarce food.

Help them travel through your garden and not have to travel around it to get out. A hedgehog friendly fence helps!

Thanks!  George
