We have some sad/bad news to report.
There have been at least 8 dead hedgehogs in the park over the last week or so.
We don’t believe their deaths have been natural, nor do we believe they have been killed by a fox, badger or dog. We will not be posting details of their apparent injuries or other details as it would be too upsetting for people. We just want to make you aware so that if you see a hedgehog in distress you can perhaps report it?
It is nice to know that there are (or were) so many hedgehogs in the park. Lets hope they go into hibernation soon so that some may survive until next year.
