The number of sitings of hedgehogs across the St. Peter's neighbourhood has increased again for another year. However, so has the number of one of the UK's favourite mammals meeting a premature end under the tyres of cars, vans and other vehicles. St. Peter's hedgehog enthusiasts are urging their fellow drivers to keep an eye open for all our spikey friends on the roads. And say whilst it is well-known that between October and April it is hiberbation-time for most hedgehogs, they all do wake up every now and then, and then go out to find food, and go to the toilet. So over the colder months to come, the sleepy and less alert hedgehogs might still be out and about, crossing the neighbourhood's roads. And the enthusiasts are asking us all to be even more careful and to watch out for them.
