PLEASE take care when tidying up the garden after winter since many hedgehogs suffer terrible injuries every year.

If you see a hedgehog staggering as if he is drunk, or 'sunbathing' please be aware that he is actually very ill.

He should be picked up using gardening gloves and taken indoors in a high-sided cardboard box. Pop a wrapped hot water bottle in with him as well a towel for him to hide under.

Offer meat-based pet food and fresh water. Then call the society on 01584 890 801.
