Baby hoglet visitor
A gorgeous wild hedgehog hoglet visiting my garden last night. The first baby I have seen for two years in the garden  I expect mum was nearby as it is very small and probably on one of its first foraging trips. I feed the hedgehogs daily so it has a nice bowl of cat food so feast on. I’ll put out another dish of water too. Great news! I wonder if it is one of Lisa’s or Maude’s - two hedgehogs I cared for and released in my garden last year.www.littlesilverhedgehog.etsy.com

Silver heart charm bracelet
Been busy working on a silver heart charm bracelet. The charm is handmade in silver clay and is stamped, fired, sanded and polished by hand. It is then hung on a sterling silver link chain. All sales support the poorly and injured hedgehogs in my York rescue centre get back to the wild. The bracelet is coming soon to my #etsy store.

More hoglet arrivals
No sooner do I set one free than some other needy hoglets arrive. Meet Spike and Milligan.
One of the hoglets was spotted out in daylight a couple of days ago but then they couldn’t be found again. Then, two days later two hoglets were found out in daylight curled up on their front doorstep. They are now snuggled up on a heat pad in a hutch and are eating a mush of cat food and special puppy milk (hedgehogs are lactose intollerant and cannot eat normal milk).If you find a tiny hoglet out in daylight check that mum is not around - it could have been a nest has been disturbed and you can put them back and keep an eye on them. If no sign of mum, don’t delay, pick them up (with gloves so your scent doesn’t get on them) and put them in a box with cat/dog food and a hot water bottle covered with a blanket and call a rescue. Luckily, these hoglets should be fine as they were found and rescued in time.www.littlesilverhedgehog.etsy.com

William is ‘born free’
William hedgehog hoglet who came to me as a tiny orphan a month ago weighing 109g has now been released back to the wild. He weighed over 500g when he was release and had spent some time in an outdoor run learning to forage and build a nest. Four other hoglets arrived today so need some more space outdoors for them to get used to the wild!

Silver hedgehog helping wild hedgehogs
I make these tiny silver hedgehog charms in silver clay to support my hedgehog rescue centre in York. Each one is made by hand in silver clay before being fired, sanded and hand polished. They are hung on a sterling silver snake chain. The proceeds from the sale of these tiny hedgehogs plus my other silver jewellery goes towards the costs of running my rescue centre. You wouldn’t believe how much food, medication and other special things they need to help them get back to the wild. They make a great gift for a nature or wildlife lover too :-)

William is ‘soft released’
William hoglet has now been released into the outdoor run in my garden. He will get used to life in the outdoors and how to build a nest. When he is ready he will then be fully released into the outdoors. I checked on him this morning and he has put on 40g since he was released outdoors which is a good sign and suggests he is acclimatising well. He is huffy when I approach which is great. He has been captive whilst I care for him and he needs to learn to be wild and wary of humans again. Hopefully he will be ready for full release in the next few days.
William came to me as a tiny hoglet weighing only 109g. He is now well over 550g. What a transformation! He has some lungworm treatment with me but otherwise has done really well.

Spindle and Whorl go back to the wild
Brothers Spindle and Whorl have now been released back to the wild. They were both over 500g. They came to me as orphans (part of a litter of 4) that were cared for by me in York. The other two have been having treatment but will be ready to release in a few weeks. They have both gone to a nice garden with a hogitat and plenty of space for foraging around. The gardens are linked on all sides, giving them plenty of opportunity for roaming. Good luck out there boys!
