I saw this yesterday, a very lucky hedghog

quote:
Please, please, please check your gardens before strimming, mowing and removing any garden rubbish. Just because you don't see hedgehogs in your garden doesn't mean they're not there! They won't run away from the noise of garden tools, they ball up and don't move. For the sake of a couple of minutes checking for any wildlife in your garden - many hedgehogs and hoglets could be saved.
The men working at the recycling centre at Tredegar spotted a large hedgehog in the green garden waste skip last week. Someone had thrown him in the skip with their grass cuttings. They kindly rescued him and he's a happy healthy hedgehog living back in the wild again

Thanks cupcake, so much of our wildlife is under threat, as Cae has pointed out in the frog post, also bees, I've seen if you have a swarm of bees, someone will collect them so please don't kill them.

and if you see a bee on the ground it's most likely exhausted and unable to fly- amazing though to see how quickly they revive if given some sugared water or honey- humans are responsible for much of nature's struggles so it's good to be able to help out now and then

Just to add do NOT leave sugared (white only) water out for bees, only use to revive single bees on the ground otherwise they'll go get the hive to come to the new food source, also honey is not recommended as it's often not suitable, good advice on the link below,

You're welcome Cae, I used honey once as it's easier to dissolve then I found out it was a no-no It would be good if the council planted wildflower fields or borders along the highways like this
