Baby hedgehog being fed

Have your say

I must give the hedgehog world credit for letting us know that their baby season is imminent.

I do not know how they arrange it but invariably the herald of that inevitable influx of orphans is a newly admitted mother who will give birth right before our very eyes.

If everything works out well, with mother and urchins, we will leave the family together, undisturbed, for at least eight weeks.
