Wildlife Trail Camera - 28.6.2017

Hedgehog cam - Night of 27.6.2017 #hogblog I'm pretty sure this was Johnno - a male hedgehog, although he's almost identical size to Jo (a visiting female), so it's sometimes hard to tell - However, Jo currently has a pale mark on her backside. I didn't see that on last nights footage Getting warm in the evenings now. Hedgehogs will need fresh water. Put a bowl out! - they'll really appreciate it :) As I'm sure you're aware, the UK hedgehog needs our help. Lost of habitat, including clean tidy gardens, less roadside hedgerows, and of course more and more development - meaning less green spaces, are all hitting our much loved little gardeners friend, the hedgehog, hard. Why not try and do you

Hedgehog cam - Night of 25.6.2017 #hogblog Just Jo featured on today's #hogblog, and isn't she walking around wonderfully now :) I'm so pleased with how well she healed at the rescue facility, and how well she's clearly coping, being back out in the wild after her release. Thirsty little girl !!!! :) Getting warm in the evenings now. Hedgehogs will need fresh water.

Hedgehog cam - Night of 24.6.2017 #hogblog - Harold and Jo's release! How unlucky am I?......On both boxes the cameras were within their 10 second time reset period when both Jo, and Harold emerged! Aggrrr…..(that’s wildlife for you !! haha) Anyway…..Both Jo and Harold came out of their respective hedgehog houses. Unfortunately for Harold, Jo was throwing her weight around at first after Harold had emerged, but both were seen later (at separate occasions!) wondering around. Jo now has a pale mark now on her backside – courtesy of my summer house water-based paint, and Harold has a pale collar marking – again, courtesy of the same paint. Obviously, for future reference, Harold will only have

Hedgehog cam - Night of 24.6.2017 #hogblog Jo, the injured hedgehog that I rescued, has healed perfectly and passed a clean bill of health from the rescue facility, ran by Irene Thomson. This morning I went to Irene’s to collect her and bring her back for release – back into her home habitat. I also collected a second hedgehog – Harold – who had unfortunately lost an eye. He’s fully healed now, but obviously completely blind on one side, so hopefully I’ll catch him on my wildlife trail camera and be able to monitor his progress. Both Jo, and Harold are secured into their own hedgehog houses for now, to rest until the evening time, when I’ll unblock the doorways and allow them to wonder off i

Hedgehog cam - Night of 19.6.2017 #hogblog Latest hogblog, from the garden Another #hogblog from the garden, that really shows the importance of fresh water being put out. It's a vital aid for our hedgehogs - and other wildlife, in the garden! Johnno, the male hedgehog, spent ages lapping up fresh water! ........Not sure about his hat though !? ;-) lol Getting warm in the evenings now. Hedgehogs will need fresh water.

Hedgehog cam - Night of 18.6.2017 #hogblog Latest hogblog, from the garden Once again, last night having only one of the male hedgehogs visit, as well as a very brief visit from the wood mouse. One of the video takes showed a second hedgehog on the background, but I couldn't tell which. Poss 'SSRT 3rd' - our old male visiting hedgehog??? (That outtake is not inc. in the below video) This hedgehog however seems to have pale quills on its head, like a bleach blonde hair style. A male, I think - from the activity given toward 'Jo' - the female visiting hedgehog (Jo is still currently in a rescue facility because of an injured back foot, but is well on the mend now, thankfully!!) As usual, on th

Jo..... Update report #hogblog A little late, as it was Sunday when I visited Irene’s facility for rescued hedgehogs, but here’s an update on Jo….(an injured female hedgehog) Firstly however, I have to give my warmest and most wholehearted thanks to Irene Thomson. On her own and with the aid of volunteers Irene gives up her time to look after and care for our rescued hedgehogs, from the local area. Irene offers a wonderful purpose built facility, giving care, medication, food and warmth. Thank you Irene, and thank you to all who offer help and assistance to our native hedgehogs, up and down the country. I volunteered at Irene’s facility, and checked in on Jo, on Sunday. Jo’s foot was healing

Hedgehog cam - Night of 6.6.2017 #hogblog Here’s an update on little Jo's rescue (well, not so little, as it happens!!!) I forgot my camera was out there when I captured her. I’ve just retrieved it and looked through the footage. From it, I was able to compile this short #hogblog, showing the last few clips of her, before I managed to carefully pick her up… (video below) The Vet rang me yesterday. They confirmed she'd lost a couple of toes on her back foot, and has a bad infection as well in her foot. There were no breaks or fractures in the X-ray – which was good news! I guess she was lucky I saw her on my camera, then went out to catch her when I did... She's now be taken to rescue facilit

Hedgehog cam - Night of 5.6.2017 #hogblog OK……Slightly different format for my blog today. This was a rescue mission - Operation Jo! haha What I think is a female hedgehog, that I happened to name ‘Jo’, has been showing signs of a bad leg on the last few #hogblogs I’ve filmed. So, last night, from 9.30 until approx. 1.20am, I sat outside looking for her. She was the second hedgehog that I captured (the first being a slightly larger male). She spent the night in a plastic case in my garage, with towels, food and water, before I properly viewed her this morning. The hedgehog was then taken to a local vet, to be gassed down and be given an X-ray. She’ll then be picked up by the local hedgehog r

Hedgehog cam - Night of 3.6.2017 #hogblog Latest HOGBLOG footage from the garden hedgehog camera. Unfortunately, Jo – the little female hedgehog is still holding her back leg up and limping. She is the second, smaller hedgehog featured in the clips. Looks like I’ll be camping out one night to try and catch her and have a close look. At least for now she still appears to be eating well, and drinking Getting warm in the evenings now. Hedgehogs will need fresh water.

Hedgehog cam - Night of 31.5.2017 #hogblog Latest HOGBLOG footage from the garden hedgehog camera. Today’s #hogblog shows ‘Jo’, our little female who has injured her rear leg somehow, although last night she seems to be more able to use it, and put weight on it. Not really wanting to interfere with wildlife and nature I still may yet try and capture her, just to check it. For now I will hopefully be able to carefully watch her on my hedgehog cam. She’s certainly retained a good appetite, and is drinking well, so I’m a little reluctant to intervene just yet…. Keep watching, and follow her progress Getting warm in the evenings now. Hedgehogs will need fresh water. Put a bowl out! - they'll rea
