Hedgehogs need your help
Winter is on its way. To feed them leave out foods like minced meat, tinned dog or cat food (not fish-based), crushed cat biscuits, or chopped boiled eggs, (milk makes them ill).
Don’t forget to leave a nice quiet den (pile of leaves and branches) or even make a hedgehog home for them. (see internet for hints)
