Learning about hedgehogs

It was a memorable “celebration” of Creation last Sunday – Sue Kidger’s reverence for the vulnerability of these small wild creatures (affected nowadays by loss of habitat so that their numbers have dwindled drastically), and the pleasure that Sue Kidger shared from her work in rescuing and understanding their needs so that they can be released back into the wild. Her message was the danger to them of metaldehyde pellets, the bright blue ones, which are fatal – that a CD sized hole in one’s fence can enable them to roam in their nightly searches for slugs and snails and beetles – they can range for up to a mile – and that it is dog food and water, never milk, that they like. Donations to help her work can be received at the Presbytery, to recoup the £40 that we gave her.
