How to make a hedgehog house

The iconic hedgehog is experiencing a dramatic decline in numbers in recent years. Help them hibernate safely by building a hedgehog house. It can be something fairly simple (https://youtu.be/VJ_6UahH9Jw) or something a little more technical.

Should you be lucky enough to have one visit and what to help them build up their fat reserves for the winter, leave out tinned dog/cat food (not fish-based) and crushed dog/cat biscuits or specialist hedgehog food. Never feed them milk as it can cause diarrhoea; instead provide plain, fresh water in a shallow bowl.

With Bonfire Night fast approaching please remember to check underneath any bonfires, prior to lighting, to make sure a hedgehog (or any other animals) are not hiding underneath.
