Help for Hedgehogs, Wednesday 29 August

Want to know if you have hedgehogs visiting your garden? You can borrow a “footprint tunnel” from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust to find out! The plastic tunnel can be placed in your garden, baited with hedgehog food and with some ink and paper inside. If hedgehogs are around, they will eat the food, accidentally tread in the ink and leave a nice set of inky footprints behind on the paper. Tunnels are free to borrow and will be available to pick up from St Leonard’s churchyard on the 29th August, when there will also be a hedgehog house building workshop happening!

Deborah Wright from Warwickshire Wildlife Trust will be at St Leonard’s in Birdingbury from 12noon on the 29th with the kits and instructions on how to use them.

Anyone wishing to have a tunnel please advise Karen Armbrister by 20th August and either make arrangements to collect from church on the 29th or contact Karen to arrange collection.
