Peak District B&B Near Chatsworth House: Hedgehog Rescue

My friend recently rescued a hedgehog that she found obviously in distress in her orchard in broad daylight.  She contacted the British Hedgehog Society who told her to keep it warm and provide plenty of water and cat food to see if it rallied. After a couple of days the little guy was obviously feeling a lot better and she kept it for another few days before she was sure it was well enough to survive in the wild before letting it go.  

According to the British Wildlife Trust "In just the last 10 years‚ hedgehog numbers have fallen by 30%‚ and there are now thought to be fewer than one million left in the UK.  They are disappearing from our countryside as fast as tigers are worldwide." This is very sad indeed and makes it all the more important to try and do what we can to help these lovable creatures.
