Caring for hedgehogs

You may have already realised that I'm an animal lover. Woodland animals feature in much of my work and you will always find lots to choose from in my studio gift shop in Blackhall Yard, Kendal. Although many people think of wild animals living in the open countryside it's important to remember that our domestic gardens can be the perfect habitat for animals such as hedgehogs. I often have hedgehog visitors to my garden in Kendal.




Bonfire night is a particularly dangerous time for hedgehogs as they love investigating the more untidy parts of a garden, where they find plenty of cover and lots of food. If you're having fireworks at home please remember to search carefully for hedgehogs and other animals that may may have made a little home under your bonfire.



Here are a couple of useful websites with lots of information about these beautiful animals.
