“Our hogalodge which we made for our wild hedgehogs who are under threat. We give them food and water everyday and a nice cosy nest. They bring us joy every evening and we film them overnight getting up to mischief in the garden! It is national hedgehog week this week – please help save them – they are good for the garden as they eat up all your slugs!”
