Too hot for hoglets

We have been used to finding young hedgehogs in the Autumn, too small to get through hibernation, and building them up ready for the Spring.

Last night we had a youngster, weighing in at 189g, dehydrated and unable to find suitable food in these hard-baked conditions. After one night in care with water and soft food he was already 20g (around 10%) better off
