Hedgehogs Released To Boost Population

Friday June 1 2012


hedgehog hedgehog


DOZENS of hedgehogs were released in Barnsley on Sunday to boost the population.

About 75 were delivered from rescue centres in Hull and Sheffield and set free in loactions along the Dearne Valley.

Monk Bretton embroidery company owner Janet Mason organised the release. She said: "I am trying to do something to protect them. This has never been attempted before on such a large scale."

Janet, of Monks Way, said they were at risk because habitats were changing and some people hunted them for pleasure.

She has teamed up with Barnsley Council and Barnsley Biodiversity Trust. "We are tyring to bring wildlife back."

The hedgehogs were released at three sites: Rabbit Ings, Dearne Valley Park and Dave Allen's nature reserve at Keresforth.

"The idea is to get them to reproduce so we can introduce the yougn to other nautre reserves," said Janet.

Hello,I used to have hedge hogs in my garden but not sure if they are still there.
can you give me some tips on how to find out or encourage them.
There is a small pile of leaves and twigs under a conifer that looks like it could be a home but I dont want to disturb it .
Thankyou
A hedgehog lover

WHATEVER YOU DO DEFINATELLY DONT DISTURB IT.TRY LEAVING OUT SOME TINNED CAT FOOD CHICKEN FLAVOUR OR DRIED MEALWORMS OR CHICKEN CHOPPED UP SERIOUSLY SMALL(NEVER FISH) OR EVEN A CRUSHED DIGESTIVE BISCUIT AND DONT FORGET SOME WATER IN A SHALLOW DISH.DONT GIVE THEM MILK IT WILL GIVE THEM SERIOUSLY BAD DIOROREA.SIT A GOOD DISTANCE AWAY QUIETLY AND YOU MAY GET LUCKY AND CATCH A GLIMPSE OF A HEDGEHOG.BEST OF LUCK.FRM TAM

HAVING A LOG PILE INCOURAGES THE SLUGS AND SNAILS AND LOTS OF LIVE HEDGEHOG FOOD ALSO DONT BE TOO EAGER TO CUT YOUR GRASS 'HOGS LOVE A GOOD FOOD HUNT IN THE GRASS.ALSO LEAVE A CORNER OF YOUR GARDEN AS NATURE INTENDED'TALL GRASS TWIGS LOGS SOIL AND DO SOME RESEARCH ON MAKING A HEDGEHOG HOUSE OR BUYING ONE.HOGS NEED LOTSA HELP OVER THE WINTER MONTHS TO KEEP WARM.PUT OUT PLENTY OF DRY STRAW.

Reply Posted by TAM on Friday May 31 2013 at 04:09
STRAW WILL GIVE THEM A WARM BED.ALSO WHEN IT GETS NEARER XMAS PUT OUT EXTRA FOOD FOR THEM.HEDGEHOGS ARE VASTLY DECLINING MANY DONT SURVIVE THE COLD WINTERS AS SOME ARE TOO UNDERWEIGHT FOR HYBERNATION OR THEY JUST DONT HAVE THE XTRA FAT ON THEM TO KEEP THEM WARM.THE EVER CHANGING UK WEATHER IS KILLING A GOOD PROPORTION OF LIVE HEDGEHOG FOOD AMONG VARIOUS OTHER REASONS.

Thank you so much for answering my enquiry, I will do my best to do the right thing and let you know what happens. fingers crossed.

Your welcolme janet.If you do have a hedgehog be sure to cover over your drains hedgehogs have poor eyesight and often fall down drains .hogs tend to use there sense of smell to find what they need.best of luck ,i hope you do have a hog.frm tam

Hi Tam, my daughter took me to wetland centre today at Old Moor and I got a Hogitat.
Cheers Janet

GREAT .WELL THATS WERE I WOULD HAVE SUGGESTED YOU GET A HOG HOME FROM THE R.S.P.B MY LOCAL R.S.P.B IS IN ROTHERHAAM.OR WILKINSONS SOMETIMES SELL THEM.TRY TO COVER YOUR HOG HOUSE WITH XTRA TWIGS AND LEAFS AND GET A PILE OF LOGS ONTOP OR NEARBY.TRY TO MAKE YOUR HEDGEHOG HOUSE DRY FOR WINTER MONTHS THEN IT WILL HAVE A BETTER CHANCE OF SURVIVAL.

Reply Posted by TAM on Wednesday July 24 2013 at 01:15
I GIVE MY HOGS WHISKERS CHICKEN TINNED CAT FOOD.AND DRIED MEALWORMS AND FRESH COOKED CHICKEN CHOPPED UP SERIOSLY SMALL NEVER GIVE THEM CHICKEN SKIN IT CAN CAUSE FATTY LIVER.AND TESCOS HEDGEHOG BISCUITS YOU WILL FIND THEM NEAR FISH FOOD IN THE PET FOD ISLE.

Reply Posted by TAM on Wednesday July 24 2013 at 01:21
AND WATER I USE A BIG WIDE BUT SHALLOW PLANTPOT WATER TRAY BIG ENOUGH FOR HOGS TO STAND IN .AND SMALL ENOUGH FOR THEM TO GET IN AND OUT OF THE WATER EASILY.1 CM DEEP OF WATER .SOMETIMES HOGS BATHE.

Reply Posted by TAM on Wednesday July 24 2013 at 01:51
I USE A LONG PLASTIC STORAGE TUB TO STOP THE CATS FROM EATING THE HEDGEHOG FOOD .LONG BECAUSE CATS SOMETIMES TRY TO PAW INSIDE THE TUB FOR THE CAT FOOD .BUT THEY WONT BE ABLE TO REACH.SO YOU TURN OVER THE TUB SO ITS LID SIDE DOWN AND IN THE LONGEST END CUT OUT A HOLE NO BIGGER THAN A HEDGEHOG NEEDS TO GET IN AND OUT AND DEFINETALLY NO BIG ENOUGH FOR A CAT.DRIL EXTRA HOLES ALL AROUND THE TUB EXTRA AIR HOLES. AND UNDERNEATH (IN THE LID BEING THE UNDERNEATH).AND EXTRA HOLES TO USE TO HOLD THE LID TO THE TUB WITH PLASTIC TREE TIES .CUT OF ANY UNWANTED PARTS OF THE TREE TIES WHEN SECURED.NOW JUST PUT IN SOME FOOD AT THE OPOSIT END FROM THE HOGS ENTRANCE.

Reply Posted by TAM on Wednesday July 24 2013 at 01:58
THIS METHOD WILL DETER EXTRA WILDLIFE E.G MICE.RATS.CATS.OTHER WILD ANIMALS.AND IT WILL STOP FLIES LAYING EGGS IN THE HOGS FOOD.ALWAYS FEED AT NIGHT THIS WILL ALSO HELP DETER FLIES.OH BY THE WAY ITS BREEDING SEASON SO WATCH OUT YOU MAY JUST END UP WITH A MR AND MRS HEDGEHOG .AND MAYBE EVEN HOGLETS AH AH.ENJOY .I CERTIANLY LOVE WATCHING MY HOGS.

Thanks for the info once again TAM, what time do your hogs appear and how do you manage to see them, my garden is very dark.

Reply Posted by TAM on Friday July 26 2013 at 01:24
I SEE MY HOGS AT 9.30 PM .ALWAYS ABOUT HALF A HOUR JUUUST BEFORE IT GETS DARK.AND IF YOU CRUSH A OCASIONAL DIGESTIVE BISCUIT AND PUT IT IN A PILE NEAR TO WERE YOU 1ST SAW YOUR HOG IM SURE IT WONT BE LONG BEFORE YOUR HOG WILL FIND IT IRRISISTABLE.

Reply Posted by TAM on Friday July 26 2013 at 01:31
I HAVE LOTSA SOLER LIGHTS IN MY GARDEN I ALSO HAVE A SPOTLIGHT BUT RARLEY USE IT.AND WE HAVE A STREET LIGHT HOVERING OVER OUR BACK YARD .BUT ITS NOT A GOOD THING TO HAVE LIGHT FOR HOGS THEY SEE BETTER IN THE DARK AND EVEN THEN A HEALTHY HOG WILL HAVE QUIET A POOR EYESIGHT .HOGS FIND THERE SUROUNDING AND FOOD VIA THERE SENCE OF SMELL

Reply Posted by TAM on Friday July 26 2013 at 01:38
YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO HEAR YOUR HOG AS HE/SHE SNUFFLES THRO THE BUSHES/GRASS/PLANTS ECT WHILE ITS DARK.THEN WJENM YOUI HERE IT TUIRN ON THE LIGHT BUT KEEP SILENT AND STILL BECAUSE A HOGS BEST SENSES ARE ITS SMELL AND EARING.

Hi Tam, Ive not seen the hedgehog for a while but as I said before, my garden is very dark. doesnt look as if the pile of twigs he was in is in use, it has gone flat looking.
hope the holly leaves I put down under the conifer to stop the cats hasnt put him off.
The nights are starting to draw in now. speak again soon. bye janet

Reply Posted by TAM on Friday August 16 2013 at 01:03
HOLLY LEAVES WONT DISTURB HIM .HE MIGHNT EVEN USE THEM TO MAKE HIS BED.I FOUND A BABY HOG THIS WEEK HUDDLED UP IN THE HOT SUN SITTING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE TRANS PENINE TRAIL PATH. IT SHOULDNT HAVE BEEN OUT ALONE OR IN DAYLIGHT .SO OF I SENT IT TO JANET .WHO SAID IT WAS VERY ILL. ANYWAYS JANET IS RETURNING BACK TO THE WOODS WERE I FOUND IT ALREADY.ITS ALL WELL AND HEALTHY AGAIN .SO WERE REALLY PLEASED ABOUT THAT.IF YOU HAVE A SHED YOUR HOG MAY HAVE MADE ITS BED UNDER THE SHED.AND HOGS TEND TO FORAGE AND WALK UNDER THE BUSHES IT MAY STAY CLOSE TO THE FENCING AND JUST DO THE FENCING PERIMETER.

Reply Posted by janet on Friday August 16 2013 at 16:35
Oh good, thanx for that. Good job it was you who found the little fella or it would not have survived. I have have put the hogitat down and covered it with twigs and leaves very near to where he was before, Hope he uses it.
Im not keen on sitting out at night because no matter what I use I get bit, Ive been on garlic pearls for the last 3 weeks cos someone told me they work.

Reply Posted by TAM on Sunday August 25 2013 at 15:42
MY OTHER HOG WAS RESCUED BLIND SO ITS BEST HE WAS PUT IN A SAFE PLACE AWAY FRM DOGS N BADGERS N PEOPLE N DANGERS

Reply Posted by janet on Sunday August 25 2013 at 17:51
Oh right, thats interesting, so how do you stop them from straying from your garden, do they rely on you for their food ?
I have a bigger than average garden and its always been based on birds but a pair of magpies have nested in one of the trees and have taken eggs and killed a lot of the young birds, so i dont see many birds in my garden now.
Hope your bites soon go, they drive you mad, dont they!!!

Reply Posted by TAM on Sunday August 25 2013 at 19:44
LONG BEFORE I MET JANET IVE ALWAYS HAD A COMPLETLY FENCED OF BACK GARDEN .SO NO ESCAPE ROUTES FOR MY HOGS BUT THEY DO STILL LIVE THE SAME AS WOODLAND HOGS.THEY USE THE BACK YARD AT THERE OWN WILL .THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS I PUT OUT FOOD AND WATER FOR THEM AND CHECK THEM FOR TICKS ECT.AND MY HUSBAND HAS BUILLT 2 WARM AND DRY HOG HOUSES FOR THEM OR IF THEY WANT THEY CAN BED UNDER MY 12X10 SHED OR MY 8X6 SHED THERE BOTH BESIDE EACH OTHER SO PLENTY OF SHELTER FOR THEM AND I DO HAVE A LARGE GARDEN SO THEY CAN GO ON THERE WANDERINGS.

Reply Posted by TAM on Sunday August 25 2013 at 20:06
BUT WITHOUT ANY DOUBT IF A HOG IS HEALTHY AND ABLE TO GO BACK TO ITS OWN WOODLAND INVIRONMENT THEN JANET WILL MAKE SURE THAT IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN.

WOW tam you must have a very big garden.
No I dont have any pets, I used to have a westie called whiskey, he was a right character. since I lost my husband over 7 years ago my daughter wants me to have another just for company but I dont want to be tied.
Well we did used to have bats in a gap between us and next door but they were not happy about it and I think they did something to stop them. Being as the bats came out in dribs and drabs we could count them and had around 230.
If I can get someone to put a batbox up for me on my side i will buy one.
I have one bird box occupied with bees and the other two I am renewing this year. Oh by the way, got to tell you this, we have a peacock that has been roaming around the gardens for the last 5years and no one knows who he belongs to, he is very tame and noisy ha ha

Hello Tam, Nice to hear from you again, you have been busy but enjoying yourself, eh !!!!
Ive been quite busy too this last week, one of my grandsons called for me after work on saturday and took me to currys for an ipad, I havent got my head round that yet.
