It's hedgehog awareness week this week, a good time to think about one way that your garden can be improved for hedgehogs. Improvements include no longer using slug pellets or cutting a hole in your fence to allow hedgehogs to move between gardens. It is also the week of the general election. Whilst deciding who to vote for remember that the leader of the Green Party actually highlighted the plight of the hedgehog in the UK at the party’s spring conference. Also, think about the agricultural policies which may affect hedgehogs in rural areas.
