Are we finally seeing an acceptance that Mr Stripey isn't the cuddly little innocent victim of the countryside that he's made out to be?

My dog has found five hedgehogs here whilst we've been out and about walking the fields at night, within the last few months, mind you there's not much spraying that goes on around here, not sure what affect sprays and slug pellets would have on hedgehogs,

Hedges are a dodo They dont breed fast enough, they dont move fast enough and the dont adapt quickly enough. Sadly they dont have much hope of a long term future at least not without a significant destocking of foxes and badgers.

Hedgehogs eat slugs and snails. If they eat enough of them they ingest the poison which slowly kills them.

Since the stripeys vacated this area about four years ago we have seen more hedgehogs. This is the third year that we've had little ones in our garden and it's brilliant to be able to watch them on the cctv and hear them snuffling around the lawns in the middle of the night.
I've just had a look on the memory thingy for photos of this year's litter but my daughter tells me she's only taken them on her phone.
