Hedgehog alert

A seasonal message from Wansteadium, thanks to the British Hedgehog Preservation Society.

Earlier this year, the Wansteadium Hedgehog Hunt asked readers to report any sightings in Wanstead of hedgehogs dead or alive. Our initial pessimism was somewhat dispelled by a number of sightings (full coverage here) and most memorably by this photo taken in a Nightingale Estate garden.

A detailed report into the state of Britain’s hedgehog population can be found here.

Wansteadium now undertakes not to mention hedgehogs again until springtime at the earliest.
