When was the last time you saw a hedgehog?

We want to know how well our spikey friends are faring in Lancashire, Manchester and North Merseyside. We'd love it if you could fill in the short form on the link to tell us when you last saw a hedgehog in our region.

As a thank you, we'll send you a handy guide to small but powerful changes you can make for local hogs where you live.
