Hedgehog Alert!

Hedgehog Alert!

Hedgehogs are very active at this time of the year out foraging for food, particularly at dusk and through the night. Please spare a thought for nocturnal wildlife when driving at night and reduce speed to give animals a chance to get out of the way or to be able to stop safely.
