Several Parish residents have re-homed rescued hedgehogs with support from ELM Wildlife The Biodiversity Group supports this growing network of parishioners interested in promoting hedgehog conservation.
** More ELM rescue hogs will need homes in the spring**
Ann saw a hedgehog in her garden, in December, during the daytime looking wobbly and panting. She rang ELM Wildlife who told her to bring the hog straight in. The hedgehog was very thin and very sick with both lung and round worm. Two months later the female hog, they named Poppy, has returned fit and well thanks to the great team at ELM. Poppy has settled in well to her hedgehog house and found a friend. (see video below)
