Annual hedgehog survey

When did you last see a hedgehog?

Hedgehogs are now classed as vulnerable to extinction in the UK and we want to know how they're faring in our region. Let us know when you last saw a hedgehog and we'll enter you into a prize draw to win a free trail camera, so you can keep an eye on your own local hogs.
