HEDGEHOG UPDATE

            

             The hedgehog monitoring has now come to an end but the hedgehogs did  wake from their hibernation one of the smaller ones was out and about on the evening of the 29th at 10:30 for a bit of food.

We will still monitor for our own benefit to see when they do emerge and will update accordingly.
