Hedgehog

Hedgehog awareness week kicks off this week and the Ecological Consulting Team at Ecosulis are helping to spread the word!  

The British Hedgehog Preservation Society are running Hedgehog Awareness Week for another year, and this time it is focusing on strimming and garden machinery. Every year hundreds of hedgehogs are injured or killed as a result of coming into contact with machinery. You can help prevent this simply by checking areas for hedgehogs before using machines!

After two record breaking months this winter with December being the warmest and January the wettest since records began, wildlife has been up to some very strange things these past weeks. There have been records of both flora and fauna exhibiting unseasonable behaviour including the appearance of daffodils as early as the middle of December, hedgehogs remaining active and bats recorded foraging regularly over the Christmas period, when they both should have been deep in hibernation.
