Yesterday I ventured out in the rain at Caldene fields to do my visible migration watch. It had rained all night and the fields were very muddy. My attention was quickly drawn to a hollow of mud on the path.
It was a hedgehog struggling on it’s back with it’s legs in the air…It must have slipped into the mud overnight and was unable to right it’s self. As soon as I went near it it curled into a ball so I picked it up and put it in the undergrowth…And I went of to do my vis-mig. However, there were no birds about due to the heavy rain. After an hour I left and went to have a look for my friend the hedgehog….By now I was soaked to the skin BUT the hedgehog had crawled away to safety…Brilliant
