WHAT TO DO IF YOU SEE BABY HEDGEHOGS IN YOUR GARDEN

I can’t stress this enough.  If you see baby hedgehogs wandering around in your garden on their own, please contact your local Rescue Centre for advice on what to do ASAP.  Please do not leave them until the following day – by then it may be too late to help them.

Do not treat baby hedgehogs as you would if you saw a baby bird on its own.  With birds it is different, as the parents will still be around watching and feeding the fledgling.  Baby hedgehogs wandering around on their own need help, often after accidental nest disturbance where the Mother has deserted the nest and babies.
