Hedgehogs, as we know are becoming scarce. There is a programme going on to help them and trace the sightings.
This site has all the information you could need, and there is a map to put your post code into, to find out how many sightings have been reported in your area. You don't have to log in.
You can report yours, can make a hedgehog hole and have it mapped and find out how we can help them. They can travel 2km and more a night, and they need access from one garden to another, so maybe making a hedgehog hole in your garden could help them survive.
I put out water and food for them every night now, as they need their body reserves building up for hibernation.
Please help them .

Thanks for posting that link, Granny - it's great! Hedgehogs need our help and this is a good way to raise their prickly profile.

There are two talks about hedgehogs this weekend at Goredale Nurseries. . One today and one tomorrow both at 2.30pm . Probably too late for many to get to today's, but why not tomorrow ?

In my area , there was an old path running across from the farmland up to the mill on the hill. The pathway went across the bottom of my garden. This was going as far back as the 1800's I believe. Looking at the map of my area, the reported sightings of the hedgehogs seem to be following the path, or closest to it, although they now have to cross a main road.

So I shall be going along tomorrow to ask a few questions.

I can't find the connection to the map, from the link I posted. So here is the map. Put in your postcode, and then enlarge your area to see where there are any around.
You can also log your own sightings on the map without becoming a member.
Let's make Wirral ' Hedgehog Lovers'

Also a hedgehog rescue centre at Larton Stables , Greasby.

Interesting to look at. https://bighedgehogmap.org/

Haven't seen a hedgehog for while Granny, but we do have field mice. A mischief of magpies was present this morning too. There is a blackbird, left behind by its parents who decided it was twopence short of a shilling as it just sat on the fence begging for food. Sadly I don't think it will last the winter.

Contact a bird sanctuary. Many of them are only too glad to help in cases like this.
